|Quoting zeke (Reply 289):|
Trim can easily be overcome with rudder pedal input by the pilots at any time.
I am not so sure as it reduces the deflection to the other side... and with the rudder travel limited to 3.5 to 5°, I'm even less sure.
Have you tried it, Zeke ?
I've asked some friends to try it on the sim.

I think people are getting really confused here.
We concentrated on the rudder as the aircraft was - in all appearances - in a wide - ish - spiral to the left.
BVut one has also to have a look at Mandala499's post :
ELAC 1 FAULT
... ELAC2, and FAC2 swap
and then you have mel'd : FAC 2 FAULT
ELACs : Elevator / aileron computers are for Normal elevator / stabilizer and aileron control...
Do you see where all this could lead to ?
But - big But - it needs a major failure or cascade of failures to start explaining the apparent airplane behaviour.
