I have heard of people switching the use of the left stick between throttle and landing.

While I am sure it is technically possible, I don't think I would want to do that. Having made a few switch mistakes in my time, the idea of coming in for a landing, expecting flaps and getting throttle really scares me. That could be down right dangerous.

In addition, for all you contest flyers, a minor mistake with the switch and the stick and you would be obligated to take a zero for the flght.

Each to his own but, not for me.
