    Hi, I live in Sweden, Europe. I would like to try FCC-mode.
    I have turned the knob on the remote controller full clock-wise.

    All that is fine! The remote controller beeps twice upon start.

    Then I did an update on the remote control via RC system assistent. (Opened the front and connected a mini-USB)
    In the RC assistent on my MAC I saw that I even could change to FCC mode in the "Compliance mode" window, right to where I change mode 1 or 2.

    So my questions are:

    Should I go for mode 1 or 2?
    Should I ONLY turn the knob on the controller full clock-wise or should I even change to FCC-mode in the RC system assistent?
    Is it ok to make both or should I put it back to CE in the assistent and only turn the knob clock-wise?
    Are there any negative parameters to think about flying in the FCC-mode?

    Many thanks in advance!
    Your help in this forum is enormously appreciated!

    I can only address the Mode 1-2 question.

    The Modes- 1, 2 refer to the assignments of vertical channels or functions of the remote's two joysticks.

    Mode 2 which seems to be most common here has the throttle on the left and pitch/elevator on the right.

    Mode 1 reverses mode 2.
