I agree in principle that steering the a/c gets more and more difficult the more and more injured a pilot is. What I though don't understand is why steering downwards should be more difficult that any other direction. This makes landing almost impossible, even if you're only slightly hurt. Can you correct this?

It's probably because these aircraft are all tail-heavy.

Fwiw, the best way to regulate altitude is with power, not pitch. Climb is just excess power beyond what's needed for level flight.
