    mode 1 VS mode 2 for IMAC

    I fly with a mode 1 transmitter. I have flown this way for over twenty years. I was wondering is there any benefit flying mode 2 in IMAC?
    Is it easier, more precise or is it just personal preference?

    Thanks for all the input.

    IMAC is all about knowing your equipment and how best to use it. I would definitely stay with mode 1. I know of several IMAC pilots in other countries that fly mode 1

    RE: mode 1 VS mode 2 for IMAC

    I switched from Mode2 to Mode4 (stick-swapped Mode1) a few years back to help with rolling manuevers.
    Mode1 (and 4) makes a lot of sense to me.

    CPLR and Leeseberg do as well as they do inspite of mode 2!!

    lol

    IMHO, mode 1 is easier for smooth flying and better rollers in particular....
    it is how my father taught me and how I am teaching my son.....

    RE: mode 1 VS mode 2 for IMAC

    I think it's funny to see that this speech is always in vogue.
    My opinion: better for the airplane mode 1 or 4 and 2 or 3 for the helicopter.
    I fly by the age of 11 years (1989) in mode 2 and for no reason at all to move on.
    I love pattern style, I enjoy the 3D, I also enjoy flying the helicopter.
    My only difficulty is in the loop with a roll but personally impute the blame to my little training in this set of figures.
    In Europe, the mode 1 is the most common, but I think both by tradition and habit.
    Only the new generation, thanks to the Internet, starting with the helicopters in mode 2.

    Bye and good landing.
