I personally believe in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and that deficit spending is sustainable forever. We really do need more Admirals in the Navy than ships and that millions of more poor immigrants will jump start the economy.

Wonder how it works during a dogfight. Don't want to autocorrect while maneuvering away from a heatseeker.

Not many options there, but that's a super specific situation.

I don't know, but I'm pretty sure the system works with the dead-man switch on the throttle. If you are not pressing it, then it's because you're lights out and the plane is free to take control, but if you are, then it will just botter you with a WARN WARN message.


When you're feeling sad, just remember that somewhere in the world, there's someone pushing a door that says "pull".

This link was dropped in the user comments, and confirms my assumption: That it is overridden by use of the paddle switch on the stick. It's alway active unless you're holding the paddle.

Cool story and link. That is one example where the all electronic FCS with no direct pilot input really works.

As of right now, the Earth vs aircraft score is every single one to zero.
