Newbie here, with very few bad habits already.
How do YOU fly?
Thumbs on the sticks
or
Pointer and thumb on the sticks?
Why?
Thanks to all in advance!

User preference. I use both at times. But primarily Thumb and index. Gives me personally smoother control, but it will work the same either way. Just depends on your own dexterity.

Thumbs only... how else would you be able to take photos and video at the same time.
You can't take Video's and Photo's simultaneously anyway. It takes time to change the settings between both for the exposures you want.

I did not phrase that very well. I meant flying and taking either photos or video while flying.
It's fine, knew what you meant in the first place actually. Still it is really user preference, as to how they fly. I am old school. Even with Atari's, Sega Genesis.....etc..etc....I still used the same with the Joysticks. Just what you are used to I suppose. And what works best for your flying style.

I don't have the thumbs dexterity of the youth of today! I pinch the RC Control Sticks using my thumbs and index fingers!

I use my thumbs for the joysticks and front buttons, index fingers for the top controls and buttons and middle fingers for the fn buttons. I can access the controls without re arranging my grip on the RC and looking at the controls. It is like your fingers on a typewriter.

Actually you can take both with the P4Pro.....
I've noticed the same on mine BarryM. But of course the video does "kinda" pause, "sorta"? Main thing I notice when taking a snapshot while video is recording is that though I have both set to RAW format, the stills taken when video is happening are in JPG format......(Which I consider way less than desireable)
