Post Throttle on the left or right
Hello

The Mocha comes with a remote. Is that remote set up for throttle on left, or throttle on right?

Also, are you selling that remote separately?

Finally, I would be interested in hearing what users are using with their quadshot. Throttle on left, or throttle on right?

I am trying to decide between the four different JR J9503 remotes and cannot figure out which one I should get.

X9503 2.4 A/S Tx Mode 2

X9503 2.4 Heli Tx Mode 2
http://www.horizonhobby.com/products/x9 ... 2-JRP2935X

X9503 2.4 A/S Tx Mode 1
http://www.horizonhobby.com/products/x9 ... -JRP2930X1

X9503 2.4 Heli Tx Mode 1
http://www.horizonhobby.com/products/x9 ... -JRP2935X1

I don't know if it makes any difference, or if it does, whether I can just reprogram it once I get it.

Thank you
David

Further to my original post:

Mode 1 or Mode 2
Mode 1 vs Mode 2 is explained on the link below. I am thinking I will go with Mode 2. Only because it seems to be the most popular choice. I hav no experience flying aircraft, so it is probably not going to matter.

Heli or Air
Heli is smooth thottle
Air is Retach Throttle
I have no idea which I should choose here?? Any thoughts? This seems to be more important.

If I had to guess ight now, I would go with a Mode 2 Air version. Does that sound like the correct choice?

Thank you
David

I guess I could re-phrase the questions as:

Is the Mocha supplied remote Mode 1 or Mode 2?
If the Mocha supplied remote Smooth throttle (heli), or Retach throttle (Air)?

I would just get the same setup in the X9503.

Thank you

I just received my Mocha here in the USA, and it is set up for Mode 2 (Throttle / Rudder on left, Elevator / Aileron on right). The throttle ratchets and is not spring-return-to-center like other stick. Personally I think it will be fine this way, but it also comes with the radio software on a disc and a programming cable, so you can swap it over to Mode 1 if that's what you want. As for the spring-return versus ratcheting throttle, this remote looks to be the same as the CT6B I have, though mine is branded as Flysky, and that other radio of mine has been switched over to have both sticks spring-return, so you could probably do that yourself if you really wanted. If you google the CT6B, you should be able to find information on how to switch the throttle to spring-return instead of ratchet. I have had no problems with my other remote and have flown model aircraft past 1000 feet with it, so as the Quadshot remote looks to be the same thing, I have confidence it will have good performance.

It comes with the ratchet, Mode 2 (throttle/yaw on the left). If you haven't flown anything so far, it might be good to stick with what is popular in your region. That way you can fly your friend's planes! OR if you fly opposite to what your region flies than no one can fly your QS :)

I actually removed the ratchet on our test model. Then I put it back in. The throttle on this transmitter is very loose and has no feel to it. So I straightened out the ratchet somewhat to have very light pressure on the stick.
