Mode 2 is by far the most accepted in the UK,  dont know about the rest of the world,  i fly Mode 1, was taught in a Mode 1 club (Oldham MAC)  BUT, i have moved clubs, (Bury Metro)10 miles away, and they fly Mode 2,    Hmmmm        i also, after having a mode 2 trainer thrust at me in a emergancy, and doing more damage than he would, taught myself to fly both,       But i really think you would be surprised at how many are Mode2,

Hi Alan, is that a vote for mode 1 or mode 2?
 
Stephen, I give up on you  I think you'll have to go down as a sploilt ballot paper!
 
Remember folks just votes here please. If you do want to chat about your vote there is another thread active for that.
