Default What Mode to Use?

For new flyers, the inevitable question comes up of what transmitter mode to use. For most of the US, Mode 2 is preferred. In Australia where I live, Mode 1 is the dominant mode in use.

Having started out as Mode 1, I was curious about other reasons for the choice of mode that flyers prefer. Then I saw this article by Martin Newell and his reasons for choosing, well, something completely different. Mode 4

His reasoning is compelling for those who may wish to go further with their flying and choose 3D or pattern flying.

For those coming off a 3ch plane which is already Mode 4 and going 4ch, staying with the Mode 4 configuration makes more sense.
