    well, According to CD, what J20 uses is not Fly-By-Wire (FBW) system ,but fly-by optical system.

    the following is the quoted from CD.

    here are the digestions:
    1. J20 now uses fly-by-optical(FBO) system,instead of FBW system.
    2. FBO is one generation ahead of FBW system.
    3. the R&D of FBO was started by Yankees in 1975. but the tech didn't get mature until 2000.
    Yankees started to apply FBO tech to some birds such as B2,F22 and last model of F16 after 2000.

    Why new thread is required for every J20 related news??

    ----

    FBOs are good, keeps you safe from EM attacks & reduce some weight.

    So which SMOF you are using?

    Fiber optic gyroscope using single mode suffers major drawback of polarization fluctuations resulting in fading.
