Default Stick Transmitter Schemes

Hi Everyone,

I have an MOA with Dual ESCs and 4WS. I decided to go with dual sticks and a 4 channel setup because of the level of fine control it allows. This is my first time doing such a thing.

Here's my issue:

Because it made the most logical sense to me, I started off by going with the following scheme:

Code:
LEFT STICK               RIGHT STICK
 Front Servo              Rear Servo
 Front ESC                Rear ESC
... Initially I found that the steering felt a somewhat backwards (I guess because I am used to turning the wheel with my right hand to control the front steering on my X-Maxx), but I stuck with it for a week or so. Today I found that I was still mixing up the throttle channels, resulting in disaster on the rocks. Perhaps unwisely, I decided to reverse things as follows:

Code:
LEFT STICK               RIGHT STICK
 Rear Servo               Front Servo
 Rear ESC                 Front ESC
... This made my brain happy as far as throttle goes, but I guess I had trained myself (formed the neural pathways?) by this point to like the steering as it was originally. My brain was starting to feel the stress. I then tried this insanity for about fifteen minutes:

Code:
LEFT STICK               RIGHT STICK
 Rear Servo               Front Servo
 Front ESC                Rear ESC
... The idea (I guess) being that steering is "supposed" to be done with the right stick on a standard 2 channel setup. My brain was indeed happy with the steering and throttle for a little while, at least tooling around on the living room floor, but it was just too weird when I got on the rocks. Stress fractures began forming on my cerebellum. I then went with this idea:

Code:
LEFT STICK               RIGHT STICK
 Rear Servo (REVERSED)    Front Servo (REVERSED)
 Rear ESC                 Front ESC
... Again this makes the brain happy on flat surfaces, but once again is too weird on the rocks. At this point there are clear fissures across my cerebellum and my frontal lobes are starting to overheat.
I am now back to running this:

Code:
LEFT STICK               RIGHT STICK
 Rear Servo               Front Servo
 Rear ESC                 Front ESC
... And I can't decide if I like it better than the original setup. My gut tells me I should stick with this because I initially found the original setup's steering backwards and I just need to untrain myself. There is smoke coming out of my eyeballs, my ears, and my ass, I now have permanent brain damage.

I guess my question is, how do YOU control your MOA 4WS crawler?
