Competitive Analysis: The Central Engine Advantage

Thrust line vs. Center of Gravity

Thrust line co-linear with center of gravity: no pitch-power coupling.

Thrust lines offset from the center of gravity produces pitch-power coupling issues.

Tail Arm

By keeping the engine as far forward as possible the tail arm can be increased. A long tail arm is favorable for stability and thus improved handling qualities. See more in the Configuration Advantage section.
