Best way of operating the sticks?

    I keep finding when I either throttle up- I also have yawed sideways or if I go forward/backwards I have gone left/right as well. I feel particulary yawing when not intended does not help me in getting as steady footage as possible. Is there a knack or a way of operating the sticks that you don't make these slight extra moves? Would adjusting the settings in the software make them less sensitive? So far I have tended to move the sticks from the top. Would adjusting from the base of the stick be better? Any hints!
    I can also tell I yaw unintentionally as whenever I launch the craft it is facing sidways once in the air!

    I hold the transmitter so I can operate each stick between my thumb and forefinger. I find this gives me much more precise control than with thumbs on top of the sticks.
