  • What is the difference between Mode 1 vs Mode 2 Radios

    Whether to purchase mode 1 vs mode 2 in a new radio transmitter is a big question for those new to RC.  Here we will explain the difference between mode 1 vs mode 2 rc radios.   To help with this explanation, we added a new video to Modelflight's YouTube channel, where Matt demonstrates the differences between Mode 1 vs. Mode 2 transmitters:     As Matt explained, "Mode 1” has the throttle located on the right transmitter stick, “Mode 2” has the throttle stock on the left. Australian pilots predominantly fly “Mode 1” while in the US, it is predominantly Mode 2.   The Mode 2 configuration is very similar to the layout in a full-size airplane...

  • 3D Helicopter Aerobatics - How it Works

    3D Helicopter Flying Mode - How it Works To fly aerobatic maneuvers, the helicopter must be in 3D Flight mode.  The flight Mode toggle switch is located in the upper right of the transmitter switches between normal and 3D mode (Fig 9). In Normal Flight Mode, the first 50% of the throttle movement is for spooling up the rotor head. As throttle passes the 50% mark, the CCPM system gradually increases the the pitch of the blades to create lift and get the heli into the air. Note: All flying in normal mode will occur above 50% throttle. Landing will also occur in normal flight mode. In the 3D flight mode, the throttle stick functions switches from controlling the throttle to controlling the pitch angle of the rotor blades. The VNR 3D must be flying to switch into the 3D Flight Mode when the throttle...
