Thumbs or fingers?
Do you use thumbs or do you use thumbs and fingers when flying?

Just curious

there are alot of these types of questions asked, you can search and find alot of info. Im not sure if you are refereing to pinching or regular style. I prefer pinching because my fingers dont slip off the stick as easily.Cliff

Is that just the big toe on top of the stick or held between two toes ?

Big toe ontop of the stick.

Just for the hell of it, I'm getting a second phoenix dongle to have a go at flying 2 helis at once; one with my toes and the other with thumbs.

I flew thumbs and then tried to go pinch for precision. Just couldn't make the switch and am now back to thumbs. Not as precise as I'd like but I'm working on it...

I don't think it matters much, whatever you're most comfortable with. I fly thumbs but I loosen the spring tension and shorten the sticks because I have small hands and short fingers. I also sharpen the stick ends when they wear down so I dont have to apply excessive pressure.
