I'll add my 2 cents here. Given that DLGs can fly decently at a range of CG locations - depending on your preference for pitch stability, or not - and that some folks are taller and some shorter, there may be more than one way to skin a cat. So to speak.

I have my DLGs setup with a forward CG (cause I suck at flying) making them a bit more stable in pitch, this also requires carrying a bit more up elevator trim to maintain a reasonable flight speed. The up elevator trim at high speed (launch speed) is enough to pitch the plane into a nice ascent angle.
I'm also a little on the tall side and tend to throw more upwards than some do (I can get away with a little more up angle without tip strikes), requiring a little less pull-up from the plane to get into launch tragectory.

That being said, the top launchers use a launch preset in most conditions.
