I can confirm that Mechatronix NG simulator we have does not have loading to the trim wheels. Very disconcerting when you try the scenario and the F/O can wind in full Nose down on you.

Nice. If the first application is at the flare, that's a bit irrelevant, as that's where you normally close the levers. I get what you're after though. The modern trend for CDAs is driven by noise...
