Re: Want to try to reprogram it so it feels and drives like an F1?

Hehe - The computers on the F-16 that I have seen were very dense analogue boards stuffed with ceramic-cased OP-Amps, there was 5 of them in a shoebox-sized module and they voted on what to do. The output and inputs were digital, though, some MIL-spec version of ARINC.

These boards were done with proper mathematical models, not some crappy Kalman Filter code with autotune of parameters that was coded straight from "Numerical Recipes in C", probably by some H1B replicant or an intern!
