Default Mode1 Vs Mode2

Howdy. I bought a FlySky T-Six radio, it came in mode1. I might like this better, dont know? Does my aircraft(fixed wing) care if Im in mode1? Do I have to mess with my electronics? Receiver. EsC? Appreciate your feedback! Looks like a nice, versatile tx. Thx...Walboy

Most americans fly Mode 2, many Europeans fly Mode 1

Your model doesn't care.

If you need help, seeing as where you're at, you will be better off mode 2.

Wow, Andy. Unless the transmitter changes where in the output sequence the sticks go based on mode, there definitely would be a change in operation. If the OP changes from Mode 1 to Mode 2 he needs to make sure that moving the left-hand stick moves the throttle and the right-hand stick moves the elevator for the FlySky T6. If it doesn't, he needs to swap those outputs at the receiver.

Whew, I just looked up the manual and the stick mode does change the mapping as long as the user makes sure the mode is correct.

My Jeti lets me assign receiver outputs to whatever I want. I agree with Andy, if help is required mode 1 is going to make it difficult unless it’s possible to do wireless buddy box with software that allows student on mode 1 and instructor on mode 2.

If your beginning it's important to have the same mode as your teacher so when it goes wrong he can help.

It is natural to have aileron and elevator on the same stick (right) and throttle and side rudder on the left stick (Same as in a full scale airplane that control aileron and elevator with the stick and rudder with your feet and throttle with your left hand) ...this is how we fly in Sweden and in the rest of Europe if you are right handed
