Just a thought...please correct me if my assumptions are wrong! In a plane like this, where the trailing edges of the main wings are pretty far aft of the cg... wouldn't downward going ailerons actually force the nose down -- just like elevator? All of my f-22 builds have linked ailerons/tailerons -- I thought this was one of the reasons why it is so great at high alpha (spoilerons). I also assume that on a full size jet, that the cg is much further back which is why they use flaps going down. (?).
