Default Draging to the left

I LOVE this plane but is it normal that the plane drags to the left? I feel I need to use the trim all time.

its from the engine torque and you balance it with the rudder.
either pedal or trim.
the prop rotates to the right and the plane wants to rotate to the left.
the more power you use the worse it gets.

happens in all high performance prop aircraft.

Actually, in flight at speed or on the ground this effect appear as left yawing force. This is why you don't touch aileron trim, but use rudder for this.
Plane rolling tendency is due to unbalanced wings lift due to side slip.

I'm not arguing with you grafspee, I was just following KISS (keep it simple stupid) in my explanation

Ok. Thank you for the answer. Any advice what I can do because it is har to use buttons in the plane using the left hand on the mouse (I'm righthanded) at the same time that I need to control the rolling of the plane. Would be easyer with an autopilot but of cause that would not be realistic

You need to bind your trim controls to your joystick or another easily accessible device, you will need to trim all the time. rudder and elevation are the primary ones to have to hand, roll is nice to have. then trim trim trim. ;-)
