I wouldnt, it will breed bad habits should you go to flying a 3 or 4ch plane.

If you are using rudder then left stick for rudder and right stick for elevator would be option B

When the plane has ailerons, I use Mode II exclusively. Left stick throttle and rudder, right stick elevator and aileron.

With "2 Ch" (actually 3 with throttle), I move the rudder to the right stick. It works well for me and the transition isn't confusing. It just seems a more natural control.

Everyone has their preferences. A lot of modellers in the UK insist on Mode I and constantly debate the choice.

Set up RC to suit your own flying. Changing Modes from I to II or vice versa is difficult but keepng throttle on left and with no ailerons, moving rudder to right stick make flying with rudder and elevator on same stick easier for me.

For 2 channel, rudder/elevator, I fly with both the rudder and elevator on the right stick. The plane in my avatar is flown like that.

Thanks Guys !!! I guess I could'nt remember where the aerloins were on the controller it has been along time since RC this should be Good I think the TD049 will carry it along even with the extra baggage ................. I will keep it as All Right stick, Simple Minded Me /// Could have just ck'ed the 4 channel I have set up but that would have been too easy. Anyway here is my setup so far everboby likes pictures........   I cut the sc.s off at the tail had to add a brace for the micro servos cut the arms to fit //has allot of throw to the elv. and rudder . This old system has no intermediate mod. Thanks Eric Pumpkin Got me anew head!!
