Quoting GearDownPlease (Thread starter):
Is is due to the FBW (finer management, if A310s and A300B4-600s are ever equipped) ?
This has just been discussed in another thread.
The A-310 and A-300-600 are not FBW aircraft.

Well, thanks but I am still wondering why... lol !
|Quoting Starlionblue (Reply 5):|
IIRC the ailerons are in fact FBW so quite fine control can be achieved.

ROLL SPOILER CONTROL
The roll spoilers are electrically controlled by two identical
computers (EFCU-Electrical Flight Control Units)
which process signals from the control wheels position
|Quoting Jetlagged (Reply 7):|
As I recall, the rationale for deleting the outboard ailerons (called "low speed ailerons" by Airbus) was that there was sufficient roll control power at low speeds (i.e. with flaps extended) without them.
