Default mode one and two

On Horizon Hobby's website on the X9303, there is a mode 1 and a mode 2 version. What's the difference?

Rafael's chart is correct.
Mode 2 is the most commonly used setup in the US.

That's rediculous! I know about a dozen mode 1 pilots and every one is right handed. Some just simply prefer the way mode 1 operates. I conceed that for certain manuevers I can see mode 1 is better but overall I prefer mode 2. Many of the old timers and pattern pilots (some) also like mode 1.

Mode 1 was developed for pattern pilots where the elevator inputs do not interfere with the aileron inputs.

If I was to say lefties and righties, I would have picked mode 2 and mode 3.

Mode 2 is more of a "normal" layout if you think control stick on a real aircraft.

Mode 1 was ----as the numerical order indicates---FIRST!

Your reasoning is totally without factual basis. I've be flying Mode 1 since Digital Proportional made its appearance.
I'm right handed.

In some 48 years of flying I have YET to see a Pilot refer to one being more fitted for the dominant hand he possesses. (Including single stick)

BTW----the difference is not whether they are "real" or not (hard to fly imagination) the difference is in stated scale ONLY!

Maybe the word "developed" was used incorrectly. I should have said: Mode 1 is preffered by Pattern flyers as the elevator and aileron inputs do not interfere with one another.
