How do you fly
I have a few questions for some of you:

How many of you fly watching tail and how many of you fly watching the head?

Is thumb flying wrong? It feels uncomfortable to fly using 2 fingers but i hold a steady hover easily

I fly watching the nose, (canopy), and I use my thumbs and fore fingers, (pinch), on the sticks.

EDIT: Correction to my statement above. I learned by flying the nose, but later on I started to watch the entire heli depending on the heli's attitude.

I watch the nose and the blades to see which way I am leaning.

Only joking.
I watch as much as I can, remaining aware of direct and peripheral vision, especially when others are flying. I find it doesn't help focussing on one particular part of the heli because this limits visual cues. Soft eyes. When flying at a distance such that the heli is hard to see, continu.ous piros are always good for keeping it together.

I'm a 3D thumber and I watch the whole heli. If I get disorientated I throw in a piro so I can see the tail pop out and re-orientate.

Mode 2 BTW...

I watch the whole machine, but pay more attention to the far side of the machine when upright and the near side of the machine when inverted.

Depends on what position the heli is in. Normally I watch the entire machine. Fly thumbs. Do some 3d. Tried many times to cross over to thumb-finger stick holding but always revert back to thumbs. I think this comes from flying planks for many years before I got into helis.Damn that ground is hard! When's the right time to get out of this money sucking hobby?

That's what did it for me. I was thumbs only until I got a sim. Then I got lazy and didn't want to hold the TX so I went to the pinch.
