In a sense, the short answer is "Yes."
But, surely, any change to speed, throttle, or attitude will change the direction and magnitude of the force needed.

If you hinged the stab at the elevator hinge and use a set-screw at the leading edge, you make a incidence changeable on the ground.

Thanks David.
I was considering adjustable stab. I recall reading somewhere that most of the old biplanes used throttle to gain or loose altitude and the stab was basically used to change the attitude of the plane.
