I fly Mode 3, with my throttle on the right and my cyclic on the left. Which is weird for some people I imagine, but not to me and this is the way I just happen to learn. ...speaking of which, my first encounter with flying a helicopter with a Mode3 stick setup was with a PS3 controller and a game called Apache Air Assault. Russian made game I believe, which may explain the mode 3 setup, IDK. There was an option to swap the control sticks, but I didn't see it until I already got used to the mode3 setup. Cool game, first person view and 3rd person tail-in view. But anyway, that was it, I got addicted to the controls and loved what they did... though the tail ticks me off in this game. They should've come up with a PS3 addon download that would let you fly 3d heli maneuvers, possibly from a fixed camera angle like rc helis... only in my dreams, I guess it's more real to the meaning of the game the way it is, Apaches. Even flying simulation mode it feels like a fp helicopter.

I mostly like helis, but I fly planes too. I would love to build an Apache or Cobra scale 450, ahhh, like a dream.
