"Pure Neural Signalling"!! Jesus.
Amazing that she doesn't think "move the joystick" ...I'm assuming she must then be thinking "now go over there"?.

I cant work out from the article whether we should be more impressed at the middleware that manages the neural interface or the avionics software in the F35 which is doing the actual (virtual) flying.

I wish I could find the BEM helmet they were working on in the 80s working towards this.

Yep. It was huge with two small LCD screens on the front of it in front of the pilots eyes. They could only wear it about ten to fifteen minutes before the weight caused migraines though.

Would their lack of lower limbs allow an amputee pilot to pull more extreme maneuvers, if their blood couldn't just rush to their legs?

Yes and no. The blood would still pool in their lower body, but it would be easier to restrict the pooling.

There was a British pilot in WWII that was a double amputee, and he went on to be an ace in Spitfires before getting shot down over Germany and spending the rest of the war as a POW. Douglas Bader; interesting guy.

Supposedly he could deal with higher G's than other pilots, but I never heard of any studies proving it.
