Default Counter-clockwise-rotating engine

So i assume that this plane has counter-clockwise rotating engine, so the primary rudder is left rather than right. Am i correct? Are there any options planned for western style engine? (if there are such in real life).

I have no particular interest in Yak-52, however i am interested in tricycle configured piston engine trainer for DCS, but, while this might sound silly, i really don't like to screw up my muscle memory with counter-rotating engine...

Welcome to the M14 Yep Left rudder for take off etc. High Speed start feeding in a little right rudder. Most 52's have a neutral point around 125 Knots.

We will have to add this to the important list of things to worry about.

Most, if not all, Russian vintage single prop planes had counter clockwise rotating engines. You'll have to get used to it if the DCS WW2 subgame ever expands to the Caucasus...

Same here! Would be nice if there was an option to reverse the rotation. Shouldn't be that hard, right?

Not going to happen. Wouldn't be realistic, at least AFAIK.

From a real pilot's perspective it doesn't matter much. Just step on the ball and you'll have no worries about messing up any muscle memory.

The point here was not to keep the turn coordinated but the impact on muscle memory. Habits/good stick and rudder skills form by repetition and IMHO this should be consistent to what you usually fly.

Do what it takes to keep the ball centered.
