I fly mode 3, which as I understand it is the same but opposite to mode 2. When I first came back to RC, I just couldn't handle the 2 sticks moving all over the place. I also flew full scale after I flew RC as a younger tacker

by the same token though piroflips with a heli are much easier on mode 2 and 3

I fly mode two, like my instructors

like probably most of us do and theres nothing fundamentally wrong with learning whatever mode the guy teaching you uses
except maybe if you have wild 3d flying aspirations and want to make sure from the start that you have the "ideal" mode for 3d with either planes or helis

Just to make sure we are all on the same page, mode 1 and 3 are throttle right, mode 2 and 4 are throttle left, the the difference lies in if the aileron or rudder is with the elevator.

since I'm right handed I like the elevator on the right edit: and the importance of modes is the pre-defined mixes like throttle cut and dual rates otherwise just move the servos and ratchet
