Default HC3sx and HC3a horizontal modes

I was looking into and came close to buying a Profi. After listening to the Pros I hear many are ditching the high dollar stabilization for the HC3sx.
HC3a horizontal mode must be taught and saved with an assigned Tx switch. Then can be turned on and off with another assigned switch or slider. The degree of stabilization is only as good as you teach it.
Does the HC3sx come out of the box ready to "see" horizontal mode by some electronic device?

I understand the rescue mode levels and climbs. Can you fly around in the horizontal mode without pitch being added by the sx?

Acro/ Pitch (bail out) is a selectable option on the HC3-SX in the software, Horizontal is also selectable.
Can you fly in horizontal mode... absolutely

Mine holds well, but that will be your choice.
