It would indeed be easier to flip your secondary over but it would do
absolutely nothing (assuming you are using a standard 3-dimensional
rotation :-> ) - the "handedness" of your coil would be unchanged.
Unless you are using a two coil setup where phasing would be
important, I can't think of a reason that would make it important whether
the primary and secondary are wound in the same direction or not.
