I'm a big fan of the spin technique. Nothing grabs your attention better than an object that is oscillating and/or flashing in some way. Even if your plane is light blue and it's a cloudy day, you'll be much more likely to lock in on the movements provided by a spinning plane in my opinion. The other main advantage of this method is you won't end up flying further than the wind might carry you if you lose sight when traveling away from the field. Never do nothing with the sticks while trying to acquire visual. Full up would work too but I believe you have the best chance of spotting the plane when spinning.
