Classic configuration is something like the A320: wings in the middle, horizontal stabilizers at the tail.
Canard configuration is something like the Beechcraft Starship: wings at the back and horizontal stabilizers at the front (canards).
I'm just wondering if the canard config has any radically different controls for pitch? Are the directions reversed for the yoke? Are there serious re-training requirements for pilots due to some major difference? Are there bad side-effects when pitching in either direction that must be compensated for?
Note, I'm interested in large commercial jets for subsonic speeds. I couldn't find any in the canard config, so the Beechcraft was the closest example I could find.
Also, I'm asking this with traditional controls in mind...hydraulics, not fly-by-wire. I want to know if there are any radically different pitch considerations, before they are compensated by a computer.
(A related question could be for supersonic deltas, because I know some of them have canards to help stability. But I wanted to focus on subsonic flight in this question.)
