Well, one way is certainly better for me than the other. I fly really bad with thumbs.

Couple things...

Ask what age most of the top thumb fliers started to fly. My guess... before 10 (or 6). So the young hands have seemed to produce thumb fliers. Transmitters are too hard to handle with small young hands. QQ, Chip and myself fly thumbs (strap), CPLR flies fingers (tray). Many heli guys fly fingers thought (strap).

Other thing, most all competition pilots (not just "top" guys) can be "zoned-in" during a contest. If you catch a pilot while they have a stick plane and an Unknown in thier hands, it might be hard to get an answer out of them. If they are cruising around the pits or outside areas, you might get more than an ear full. It could just be timing. I know I try to disappear while I'm learning my Unknowns so that I'm not disturbed or not available for questions/conversation.
