The RoF FFB control model makes the neutral point of the stick (i.e., the position where the motors are trying to centre it) lean forward of the upright position that a spring centred stick has. You don't have to programme anything, it's already done by RoF. The result is that you still have a nose-up pitch under high power and a nose-down pitch with power off, but it is much less of a problem than with a spring-centred stick.
With the SE5a, hands-off with a spring-centred stick gives about 10 degrees up-elevator. Hands off with a FFB stick gives 0 degrees up elevator. I found the SE5a to be almost unflyable with a springy stick, but it's very nicely balanced with an FFB one. I'd say it's pretty good and matches well with how I expect the real aircraft to fly - based on my experience in gliders.
