"Stiff" Flight Control Surfaces

I’ve noticed that many aircraft, especially the A320 family, seem to have flight control surfaces that move in a “swivel” effect. Here’s what I mean:

The flight control surfaces on the real A320 family seem to lock into place, without gradually moving up and down. Watch closely at how the ailerons move in this video.

The purpose of this topic is to request just that: have “stiff” flight control surfaces that lock into place. This would greatly enhance aircraft realism, and it’s also visually appealing!

The A320 model needs reworking. It has several inaccuracies - the ailerons being one of them.

In fact realistic movement of the ailerons is something that even the most recent aircraft don’t have - partly because such random movement is extremely difficult to implement.

Have a great rest of your day!
