There will be torque reaction as long as the prop has to fight against drag to turn. Essentially, the motor has to push against something to get the prop to turn in the otehr direction, and that something is the fuselage. You can only trim for it at a set speed and rpm, though since the plane has dihedral it can also be partly compensated by adding side thrust to the motor.
