Morning all,

Just a quick one, Which mode is better to fly on, 2 or 4?

Whichever one you prefer/is most intuitive for you!
You need to be comfortable with the setup you have, that way your flying will come more naturally to you.
Personally I prefer mode 2 for flying my quad because the right stick is simple in that it will 'bank' the model in whatever angle the stick is at, much like a conventional joystick. This is only my preference though, others will vary. It really is a personal choice/'feel' kind of thing. Neither is strictly 'better' than the other, its just what's best for you :thumbsup:

not sure what mode 4 is to be honest

mode 1 (tank or caterpillar drivers )
mode 2 (pudding stick jockeys)

mode 1 main controls aileron and elevator are on seperate sticks
mode 2 main controls are on same stick

im a pudding stick jockey myself but its normally who first trained you whose mode you follow

if your a newbie with out any previous experience mode 2 is most common

each has its own slight disadvantages/advantages

i like the fact i can use one stick and still fly and the throotle/power control is not on a major control surface stick
