Another tidbit - all portable UAV control boxes are mode2 - this
is standardized.

The IAF teaches its uav pilots on mode2

Mode 1 Holding with pinch. It helps to get precise controls.

I think choosing modes in Tx when starting to fly depends on the way our brain thinks. Some people have their brain's left hemisphere more powerful while others have the right one being more powerful. What do you people think? Its like some people use their right hand and some do left hand to perform certain works.

I read something....   http://www.metaphysics-for-life.com/brain-hemispheres.html

Please express your feelings about it.....   Smiley

Personally I think Pinching (mode1/mode2 - doesn't matter) might actually be more precise with some serious practice but being a PS3 FPS gamer, I find mode 2 with thumb action as a natural progression.. Just my 2 cents.. I think this issue is more of a personal preference more than anything else..

Just for the complete noob - Any decent programmable radio will allow you to switch between mode1 and mode2.. Thumb or pinch is more of a personal preference from there onwards..

@ppcruice, Many programmable radios allows you to change b/w stick modes . My Flysky FS-T6 has mode1 to 4, default being mode2 Smiley  .

Hi All,

Very Soon, I'll be starting my RC Hobby and will be getting my first RC Controller.
So, am very curious about which mode I should fly with MODE 1 or MODE 2.

I'll be getting JR XG8 and it comes with MODE 1 by default (for some good reason).

Also, I'll be flying planes and Gliders mostly, and that is where my interest are.

And as I am starting Clean, is there any suggestion which mode I should learn based on my flying requirement?

Regards,
Sapam

RC Heli pilots do it INVERTED



If you a Right hand person then you shall go with MODE 2 as all the precise movement of the aircraft (Aileron and elevator) are controlled from Right hand stick in mode 2 Controllers.  And Throttle and Rudder on Left which doesn't requires much input .

And Vice-Versa .
And good choice on the Radio  Thumbs Up

@dhurva, thanks for the suggestion.
I am also thinking of taking the simulator kit along and maybe spend first few days on the Simulator and try to get accustom to the controller and also will check out both MODE 1 and MODE 2, and see which one I am comfortable with.

Not directly related to this Thread, Any suggestion on my first Plane? I want something I can abuse with, as for sure it'll definitely crash quite often while learning, so I don't want to spend on something expensive initially.

Regards

Few weeks on sim will be good .
I would say Skysurfer (Multiplex : Easystar) or J3 Piper is a good start.
