Nice video btw, keep em coming!

I used to have a copy of FSX and the FSLabs A320 was pretty darn close to the real thing. I now use X-Plane 11 because the flight models are just better. The best A320 for X-Plane is the FlightFactor one (although I have heard good things about the Tolis A319 too). It is not as good as the FSLabs one, but still good enough to teach you a lot about the bus.
With the A320 it is all about system management and understanding what the plane is trying to do.
When you give an input on the side-stick it is interpreted by the software and it will give you the flight-control deflection needed to achieve what you are asking for...as long as it is within safety limits.
It is a very different way of flying, but to be honest, once you get used to it and work together with the plane (and not against it) it is a great way to fly 4 legs a day without becoming too tired.

I usually read here and don't post very often, but I thought this is a community that would enjoy this short video.
I fly the A320 series for a living and once in a while, when something nice or interesting happens, I get my phone out and press record. Over time I have collected some (hopefully) nice footage and I thought I would put it all together.
Like I said, it is all filmed on my phone, so the quality is not brilliant. I would love to invest in a nice camera, the problem is it would have to be small to fit in my flight-bag and to not obstruct us on the flight-deck.
Has anyone experience with Gopros?

I am really sorry for the private link.
This video was picked up by our management. They liked it but wanted to make sure it is OK to share.
The video has been through marketing, the social media department, HR, the press department, etc., but now I got the official nod to share it.
The link should work now.
