For example: on takeoff at rotation, would the clockwise rotation of the 2 engines have enough force to move the nose of the aircraft left? Precession would be the force, is it strong enough?

  • $\begingroup$ Location of the engine (wing or tail) shouldn't make a difference in the yaw effect. The F4U Corsair, for example, needed rudder trim for takeoff with a propeller engine mounted in its nose. Everything said about jets in the linked question should apply to your tail-mounted engine as well. $\endgroup$
