beeen flying helis on and off for few years. my question is for you 3d flyers.is it more common to use the sticks on transmitter with thumbs only or like i do, grasping sticks with thumb and index finger?
Is one method more preferred than the other?

Some pros do one and others do the other, but most say that pinch is more precise.

I have always used thumbs but thinking about making the switch to pinching. Been practicing some on the simulator but it just isn't comfortable quite yet.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

It depends on my mood and what I'm flying.
Which ever works for you my friend, no right or wrong. You may find adjusting the stick height helpful if you are a "pincher, a short stick height for a "thumber". Just me though!
