That should read "on some
models." For example, the DX7 needs a trip back to Horizon to have things switched over because it has to have new firmware installed. Likewise, the JR9303 has an analogue trim for throttle which can't easily be shifted to the other side. So don't buy a transmitter expecting to change mode unless you check carefully first.
Incidentally, I flew fixed wing mode 1 for many years but switched to mode 2 when I took up helicopters two years ago.
