Basically the 'unusual' modes 3 + 4 are fine if the person is a good flyer and does not need assistance from others.

It's a bit like custom cars fitted for people who have a disability or function that dictates a system to match. The car is basically only drivable by them.

Your title is a bit misleading as it implies a question as often is asked : What mode should I buy / use.

There is also a lot of mis-information put out as well .. so many times I read that UK / EU is Mode 1 ... where tha comes from I have no idea as majority of flyers I know and have flown with have been Mode 2 .. but yes there are a number who I know flew Mode 1 .. in fact many of them could fly BOTH modes .. Why ? because of teaching others .. who generally were buying Mode 2 radios.

Many Champion Aerobatic guys I met years ago were Mode 1, and Prettner explained it well one day ... that stick interaction is less on primary controls with Mode 1. Seemed to work for him !!

Anyway - I've yet to see anyone fly Mode 3 or 4 ... so it will be interesting when I do.
