I fly Mode 1. Learned in Japan back in 1980, and Japan is Mode 1. Very hard to find other Mode 1 Heli pilots in the US to help with trimming and test-flying. Always plenty of help at a local field over the years, but no one could fly my heli. Always wondered if it's better to have two transmitters hooked up as Instructor/Trainee so a Mode 2 pilot could fly my heli.

i'm still thinking of going to mode 1 as i have a friend who wishes to learn and spends time in America as well where it is all mode 2?
other factors are it appears to be easier to buy and sell mode 2 radios, most of the flyers at my field fly mode 2 so getting and giving help would be easier, if i did the same, and although i can now piroflip on the sim in mode 1 i have been trying mode 2 on the sim with the mode 1 radio and even with the spring being on the wrong side it has made me curious to try to fly this mode with a heli and see how i like it. it's allways possible to change back if i don't. if i go ahead the change is £30 for the 10X and £40 for the WC2 so i think i would pay up and let someone else do it, the guy said that the WC2 price is based on 1 hours labour and they could be a problem to do.

I´m sold on mode 1. It is possible to learn making nice piroflips (not as perfect as an expert Mode 2 Flyer) but nevertheless nice looking PF´s but it takes a lot more time than it does for a Mode 2 flyer.
Reason is the mode 2 flyer gets the right correlation between nick and roll as a gift by simply stirring circles where a Mode 1 flyer has to learn to hold constantly the right phase shift between left and right hand motion.
This is so difficult, that even small variations in piro-rate take large amounts of time to adapt to them.
On the other hand the mode 1 flyer has the same advantage for rolling circles like the mode 2 flyer for piroflips, in fact the motions of the sticks for a rolling circle in mode 1 are identical to the stickmotions of a mode 2 Piroflip.
So if any mode 2 Flyer want to share the PF experience of mode 1 flyers start doing rolling circles, slow and fast rolling, forward and backwards

So instead of switching to mode 2 one could beat them with their own weapons doing perfect rolling figures (circle, eight, loop, cuban eight) where any mode 2 flyer would have a similar hard time to achieve Mode 1 level than a mode 1 flyer has in regards to Piroflips.

In my opinion the dominance of piro-figures flown today is caused by the dominance of mode 2 flyers- they simply fly what is easier for them to do and mostly ignore rolling figures.


Best Regards and sorry for the spelling,
Stone

Reason is the mode 4 flyer gets the right correlation between nick and roll as a gift by simply stirring circles
I think that you've got your modes muddled there . Mode 2 has all the cyclic controls on the right stick , Mode 3 has all the cyclic controls on the left stick (left handed version of mode 2) , mode 1 has throttle / aileron on the right stick , mode 4 has throttle aileron on the left stick .
At the end of the day , it gets dark .

I'm praticing rolling circle now. It seems to be easier to be done in Mode 1.

Similary, Piro flip is easier to be done in Mode 2. ( I had once thought if I should change from mode 1 to mode 2, expecially when I first learned how to do Piro flip.)

Cos I fly also glider and airplane, Mode 1 is more convenient to me.
