I started out flying planes and still do but now that I'm flying helis also everyone is telling me to start doing the pinch on the left stick. I usually on use my thumbs its a hard transition for me on something so simple. I'm also a gamer so that's why I feel so comfortable with thumbs only. Any one else have this issue

I tried both, can't really do the pinch that well so I stuck with the thumbs. Works for me, But you have to do whatever feels good to you.
Just have fun!

One way is no better than the other. Its preference, comfort, and what works best for the individual pilot.

I fly thumbs but my wife like the pinch.

Using thumbs gives greater range of motion than the pinch method, if you don't move your hands: easily proven empirically. Using a radio tray provides the extra range with the pinch method. Both methods are use by different top pilots, both FAI and 3D.

I thought this topic had finally died the death it deserves. Gonna be a long winter, no doubt.

Maybe we could have a new topic, say, Nitro vs Electric.
