Default How do you hold your sticks?

How do you heli pilots like to hold your sticks? Thumbs only? Thumb and forefinger pinch? See my pictures, they should explain. I'm just curious what is the most successful way. Its kinda ridiculous, but kinda interesting, right? Everybody has an answer for this one. Please vote!! Thanks!!!

Default RE: How do you hold your sticks?

funny as for me i use the finger and thumb but the disadvantage i find with it is that its harder for me to feel exactly what im doing with the sticks.…

for instance, i might want to do a few foreword or back fast rolls so i put full elevator forewar/back but i somehow cant stop putting a little aileron. or visa versa.

yep and i have my springs on the sticks as tight as posable but they are never tight enough for me...

some times i wish i learnt to fly with just thumbs
