Hello guys I have got a problem with my IFDG Airbus fleet A319/320/321. What I experience during a descent into an airport is that my speed is always too high. I set thrust idle but there is still a need for full speed brake. Does anyone of you know where I can change that? Maybe somewhere in the aircraft.cfg file? Thank you very much!

Whats your vertical speed? Your descent angle could be too great to succesfully control your speed, requiring excessive airbrakes!

That is not the problem as I have a vertical speed of 1500 to 2000 ft/min.

You mention your speed being too high despite having thrust at idle - Try controlling your rate of descent with thrust and your airspeed by adjusting pitch input/angle of attack.
