Does anyone know the angular deflection limits of the longitudinal (pitch) and lateral (roll) axis of Airbus's side-stick?

From this site:

enter image description here

So max deflection in pitch is +/- 16 deg, in roll it is +/- 20 deg


There is a rather quick YouTube video by a gentleman called Capt. Joe which can partially answer your question.

The limits of the effective deflection of the sidestick is presented on the PFD, which that also changes with many variable factors to allow the aircraft to operate within its approved and safe performance envelope.

    $\begingroup$ And anyway the answer should be in the text, not in the linked video only (or it should be a comment). $\endgroup$
