Jets really aren’t that manueverable. The whole 120’ wingspan and gas turbine engines response time thing.

I think electric motors come in many ft lbs less than we used to have on the T-props.

The Brasilia I used to fly would really make your feet dance on the rudder pedals every time you adjusted the power even a little.

Turboprops are notorious for their propellor torque.

Would probably have marginally more torque trying to turn the plane left, but not as much as a turbo prop.

Would be very similar to a recipricating powerplant turning a propellor.
