Default Sport Mode vs. Pro Mode

Well I've been flying my Aerobird Challenger in sport mode for a while now (13 flights to be exact) and have been in one sonic combat fight. I was wondering if I am ready for pro mode and wanted to know how much better it is and if it is easy to fly. How much more control do you have? Is it better for combat?

Turns are tighter at PRO mode but you have to input UP as you turn otherwise you loose altitude. At SPORT mode the one flap deflection gives the combined result of turn and a bit of UP.

Personally I find SPORT mode more relaxed and stable. As for combat PRO should be more suitable.

Once you try ProMode you will never go back to SportMode. Its like flying a totally different plane. Keep the control inputs small and you will have no problems.

Yeah I've noticed that when I turned I would have to push forward (down) simultaneously to keep it from climbing.
