I have two aircraft. One with just rudder and elevator and one with ailerons as well.

When using the rudder/elevator plane we use only the left stick... rudder and elevator. When we switch to the aileron plane we use the left stick for aileron and elevator and shift the rudder to the right stick with the throttle and barely touch it.

I hear the expression "Mode 1" or "Mode 2" or whatever. Maybe someone would kindly explain what is what.

I learned to fly on a glider with elevator & rudder on the right stick (Mode ?). Years later I got into e-flight with elevator & rudder on the right stick & throttle on the left (Mode ??)

Now I have just bought a Tiger Moth and will be putting the ailerons on the right stick with elevator. Rudder & motor will be on the left stick (Mode ???).

I think there is at least one other choice of Mode.........????

This forum is a huge help to me as a relative Noob to e-flight. Thanks everyone

Regards, Rod

Mode 2... aileron and elevator on the right stick.
rudder and throttle on the left stick.
Most people use this configuration.
Note it makes your airplane flyable by someone else..
And you can fly someone else's plane without re-training your skills.
