Simple problem though - left=right, right=left, check other stick and send priority to that one and let the other pilot land it.
In any event - nope.. the 190's ailerons are conventional and inputs are mechanical / hyd boosted.
(1) Getting the wrong result from your actions completely fucks with your muscle memory. Have you tried riding a bike with reversed controls?
(2) I don't know the 190's specifics but you can swap mechanical inputs. On some planes I've handled, it's super easy. That's why you (should) always check not only whether the ailerons move but also if they're moving in the right direction.
True story, I just meant once my sidestick did that the first thing I'd do is try the PNF's sidestick.
As for the 190 (or anything) - I thought any sort of control rigging / hydraulics for flight control surfaces required visual and/or flight tests by the mx crew? And yeah I'll never forget how crazy my CFI was about deflection DIRECTION during control checks.
With that in mind, according to info out there this was a post maintenance ferry flight for a C-check, so.... yikes.
