    Mode 2 is standard now days. Throttle on left stick and pitch/roll on right stick.

    Mode 1 is the opposite. Some say mode 1 is the old way, others say it has European origins.

    Some countries have the steering wheel on the left, some have it on the right. I have noticed that those countries with the steering wheel on the right tend to lean toward mode 1 while the steering wheel on the left lean toward mode 2, YMMV

    @Michigan_PI Hadn't seen YMMV before. I found this definition and found it quite funny.

    :lol: Exactly! That's why I change modes if boating rather than driving.
    Unless I am corrected from the back seat. (They're always right) ;)

    Oh absolutely, if launching from a boat, make sure you switch to mode 1!!
