 Aircraft flight control systems - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The fly-by-wire flight control systems eliminates the complexity, fragility and weight of the mechanical circuit of the hydromechanical flight control systems and replaces it with an electrical circuit.
A wire can be severed, or a flight control computer can be lost, and the backup can still convey the control information to the actuators.
The pilot uses something akin to a "joystick" to fly the plane, and his commands go through an electronic interface to operate robotic servos at each control surface. /wiki/Fly-by-wire

Since you're using electrical wires to tranmit the control signals, they called this system "Fly-by-Wire".
In the F-16, the engineers chose to convert the mechanical force applied by the pilot on the stick into electrical signals, which could then be transmitted over electrical wires to the actuators.
One of the unexpected negative side effects of this system was that pilot's couldn't get used to the fact that the control stick didn't move (it didn't need to move - just needed to measure the direction and magnitude of the force applied by the pilot). /f-16_forum_printview-t-212-start-0.html

 NASA - NASA Dryden Fact Sheet - F-8 Digital Fly-By-Wire Aircraft
Wires from the control stick in the cockpit to the control surfaces on the wings and tail surfaces replaced the entire mechanical flight-control system in the F-8.
Wires replacing cables and pushrods would give designers greater flexibility in configuration and in the size and placement of components such as tail surfaces and wings.
It was safer because of its redundancies and because, for military aircraft, wires were less vulnerable to battle damage than the hydraulic lines they replaced. /centers/dryden/news/FactSheets/FS-024-DFRC.html

 Fly-By-Wire A Primer for Aviation Accident Investigators
ly-by-wire (FBW) is the generally accepted term for flight control systems in which a computer processes the pilot's control movements and sends electric signals to the flight control surface actuators without any mechanical linkage.
Caused by many factors including the effect of filters, computer processing time, task time-sharing by computers and signal processors, "higher order" effects of the feedback control system, digital sampling effects, and/or actuator rate limiting.
FBW flight control laws may not be stable for all values of gain or phase angle (the difference between pilot input and airplane response in terms of frequency; exactly opposite would be a 180-degree phase angle) that can be applied. /internet/alp/2000/febfbw.htm

 Unlike Airbus, Boeing lets aviator override fly-by-wire technology
Fly by wire simply means that computers on the plane transmit the pilot inputs into electrical signals that are sent through wires to actuators that move the control surfaces.
Lauber said the pilots were supposed to fly by with the gear down at about 100 feet.
On conventional planes, the flight-control surfaces are moved by hydraulic devices controlled by cables that run through the airplane. /business/boe202.shtml

The RTP (Round The Pylon) flight system is a method of flying electric powered model aircraft in restricted spaces, both indoors and outdoors.
The models, which are tethered to a central pylon, can be controlled by the "pilot" who has full control of the model at all times without the use of a radio.
This setup is ideal for models such as this slow flying Piper Super Cub where space restricts line length to less than 5 metres (15 feet). /~rtpelectrix

In this way they get familiar with control line flying and if they want they will be informed about upcoming events.

 Fly-by-wire Report
The difference, though is that in fly-by-wire systems, the signal is sent by thin wire, not bulky cable, to a computer which refines the signal as necessary.
On a 777, the distance between the yoke and the elevators is over 200 feet, yet the signal traveled this distance by wire in milliseconds.
Since a computer needs to read this signal, it is sent by wire to four boxes called ACE's, the acronym for Actuator Control Electronics.

Yet as FBW continues to gain acceptance among pilots and operators and the cost of the technology comes down, experts predict a major shift in business aviation away from today’s cable-and-pulley or hydraulic flight controls to systems that are manipulated by servoactuators taking their cues entirely from computers.
But in basic terms, FBW systems replace the mechanical linkage between the cockpit controls and the moving surfaces with electrical wires.
In the end, FBW is designed to enhance performance and improve safety, said Villa, explaining that control-surface positioning will be optimized to reduce drag, and the static stability margin will be reduced for a corresponding reduction in fuel burn. /issues/08_04/08_04_flybywirep1.html

 What is a digital fly by wire system:FBW system comparison of f16 to mig29
Re: What is a digital fly by wire system:FBW system comparison of f16 to mig29 -- z
Original F-16 used analog FBW, so the original 8 European nations that uses F-16 prohibits their F-16 from flying too close to radio broadcasting towers, cuz interference was too strong & may lead to crash.
Digitized FBW (DFBW) uses 2 digits, 0 & 1 to represent low & hi, so mathematically, the voltage graph is consisted of 2 parallel broken lines, one being 0, & the other being 1. /plaboard/archive/268909.shtml

 QwikConnect Volume 5, Number 1 - The ABC's of Fly-by-Wire - Glenair, Inc.
Fly-by-Wire systems matured rapidly, and in 1976 General Dynamics took the bold step of eliminating backup hydromechanical controls from the design of its FBW F-16 Fighting Falcon - making it the first high-performance aircraft to rely completely on electrical wires to relay flight commands instead of the usual cables and linkage controls.
In the early 60's, NASA engineers began work on an electrical Fly-by-Wire (FBW) control system which would provide aircraft engineers with more flexibility in aircraft design and architecture, especially in the placement of control surfaces.
The F-16's Fly-by-Wire control system has evolved over the years from a four channel analog system to the quadraplex digital FBW system used in today's F-16/C and D designs. /qwikconnect/vol5num1/coverstory1.htm

The sooner that they install a Fly By Wire in Europe the BETTER
Anyway, we were driven down the hill to the 'flight deck' and myself and the 3 other 'pilots' got suited up in red flight suits before being briefed on the controls, not much to it really, just hold the accelerator tight on full speed and steer right and left using a handlbar control.
Then they cut the engine after 7 mins and you swing back and forth and it's so relaxing and quiet for about 3 minutes as the momentum dies down and they can stop you. /forum/viewtopic.php?t=451&view=next

 F-8DFBW EC77-6988: F-8 Digital Fly-by-Wire in flight
Digital fly-by-wire is currently used in a variety of aircraft ranging from F/A-18 fighters to the Boeing 777.
Digital-fly-by-wire is more efficient because it is lighter and takes up less space than the hydraulic systems it replaced.
The F-8 Digital Fly-By-Wire (DFBW) flight research project validated the principal concepts of all-electric flight control systems now used on nearly all modern high-performance aircraft and on military and civilian transports. /gallery/Photo/F-8DFBW/HTML/EC77-6988.html
