Mode 2 is standard for North America. In Europe I understand it is a mix of Mode 1 and 2.

Your profile name does not indicate what part of the world you call home. If you are not in the US I suggest you update that or people will give you bad advice.

Welcome to R/C and RC Groups

Get mode 2, i believe that is what most flyers use.

go mode 2 if your US. That makes it easier for you to use other people's stuff and for them to use yours.

No I wouldn't mention buddy cord compatibility .

A buddy cord is works perfectly well with a Mode 1 master and a Mode 2 slave or vice versa. As more or less the only Mode 2 flier in a club full of Mode 1 fliers I know this for a fact. The mode doesn't affect the channels used (e.g. throttle is always ch3 for Futaba) and it's channel information that is transferred not stick positions.

Mode was important for training in the old "grab-the-box" days but those days are long gone .

Oh no they are not.

In fact, "grab the box" or the "hand on hand" approach are the dominant form of training at our field as most new flyers are coming in with RTF electrics which have no buddy cord capability.
