Stop! You're Holding Your Controller Incorrectly!

I know it seems wrong for me to preach about how to hold a controller, but there really is a right and a wrong way.

If you cradle your transmitter and only use your thumbs, stop! This is not only highly inaccurate, but it can be dangerous.

For pinpoint precision, you need to have your index fingers and thumbs working in combination. This allows your fingers to support one another by pinching the control sticks, rather than resting and rolling your thumbs.

If you use your thumbs to control because the rest of your hands are being used to support the controls, then you need to read my other post about using a neck strap. It's imperative to use one, or you could endanger people or property with your drone!
