Default Down Elevator Effectiveness

Hi Jon,

The aerodynamics are way too boring, so here's my attempt at simplicity. When in 3-D, up elevator is farther from the wing's influence than down elevator. Plus, depending on the airframe, up elevator can be bucking the weight of the wing as well (vertical C/G). Hope this helps...
