Default Determining Drag Curve of an aircraft CFD

CFDger is on a distinguished road
I want to determine the drag curve of an aircraft's CAD model with the means of CFD.

My question is as follows: Does this aircraft need to be trimmed for each point investigated within this drag curve such that the acting forces and moments are balanced?

If no, what would be the correct answer?

If yes, is it the correct way to parameterise control surfaces of the aircraft and iteratively adapt their AoA within the simulation in order to achieve this balance of forces and moments?
