how you hold your radio?

this is especially important if you launch your plane by hand:
for all that i have seen, most guys just hold the radio with their hands. no strap nothing.
some use the strap. a few use a tray. even fewer a strap and a tray.
but those that dont use a tray, their commands are given with their thumbs.
lets analize each way:
1.-no straps: you have to use the thumbs all the time, as you are holding the radio with the other fingers.
if you want to move a switch, you have to hold the radio with 1 hand.
but if it happens that you need to correct something at that moment, you cant.
and if you try something, the radio may fall.
2.-straps: if you are using straps, it will not fall to the ground.
still, it falls out of your hands and the plane may crash.
3.-tray: with the tray, you will be able to move a switch without the radio falling out of your hands and loosing control.
and you can control the plane with your other fingers. like holding a pen when writting. you must agree that this way you have a more precise control. or you think that you can write the same if using only the thumb?
still, the radio may fall, but it is less likely, as the tray helps to hold it.
4.-tray and strap: now with the strap also connected, there is no way that your radio will fall. and you can correct anytime.
something like this:
or this:
or if you build it yourself:

and if you need to launch your plane, how you do when not using tray and/or strap?
no tray means you cant do any correction until your hand gets back to the radio.
think about it.
