Due to the many different views of our manufacturers, we have tried to introduce a uniform system for us, as far as the definition of the kit design for the individual RC products is concerned. This description does not necessarily have to coincide with the definition on the manufacturer's pages, since different approaches are often used for the definitions. For example, an ARTF (Almost Ready-to-Fly) is named so by us when it has a built-in or enclosed drive and / or servos.

Mode 1 bis Mode 4
Remote controls for model making are sometimes delivered in different modes (also called stick mode). For many remote controls, these modes can be changed. The most popular mode is Mode 2, because here the throttle (or engine speed or pitch) is on the left stick and the steering is controlled by the right hand. Altogether there are 4 different common executions of the settings of a transmitter. The function throttle or engine speed (pitch in the model helicopter) is controlled by a non-self-neutralizing stick in each position.

1) Legal situation Austria
i. E-scooters up to a speed of up to 25 km/h are considered electric bicycles. For this reason they can be used by all persons aged 12 years and over, (or with a bicycle license from 10 years onwards) on the road, as well as on cycle paths.

i. The Austrian Road Traffic Regulations apply basic rules that must be observed for hoverboards, Segways, electric unicycles, e-scooters and electric longboards on public roads:

In contrast to other means of transport, there is a fundamental danger that these devices will "take on a life of their own" if the rider jumps off or falls. This makes boards a danger both to people on foot and to vehicular traffic on the roadway. Therefore, their use on pavements will usually be considered illegal. On the other hand, the use of snake, skate and longboards is permitted in residential and play streets.
The following applies to electric skateboards: In Austria, an electric means of transport up to 25 km/h and less than 600 watts is considered an (electric) bicycle, with some restrictions and a lenient police force. Above 600 watts or 25 km/h, however, things get more complicated; the use of such devices can only be recommended on private property. With a device smaller than 600 watts, the cycle path is to be used and if this is not available, the carriageway. It is forbidden to use the pavement with any means of transport that is not a child's toy and that moves at walking speed, except for moving to and from the pavement.
