Actually AJ (Pro) likes slightly Nose Heavy airplanes. Better Precision. So no, the Control Surface, (Elevator) is not going to be (neutral position). Will have some Up Trim.
If you start getting Neutral to Tail Heavy, it is going to balloon up on you more and that can get you in trouble in some manuvers. Ok for low hucking if you can do Full (Deadstick)
Harrier Landings already. If you are flying mixed Precision and 3D, gets harder to do the Precision side.
Last I heard Joe was flying Neutral or a tad ahead of Neutral to the Nose side...
