A/c wiring

I'm installing a central ac unit and I was gonna run red black and a ground in flex from 25 amp hacr breaker to fuse less disconnect then a whip to unit outside. I was going to use 12 guage. I was checking the book again and it says recomended wire size is 12-3. My question is the neutral is useless right? Would I cap it on both ends and leave it be if I did it this way? Or am I missing something?

You only need the two hots and a ground in the conduit.

If you used cable you would mark the white as a hot with tape or magic marker.
The electrical code requires a service disconnect within sight of the unit.
