Here's a photo of me holding one of Ben's revs inverted. The picture is high enough resolution that you ought to be able to see how my hands are.
I think the way that I hold my hands in an inverted hover is very similar to most people, but there is no Rule
or anything. Some people may do it differently and I'm sure I do depending on the wind, or if I'm preparing to do something else, or what have you.
Just watched your YouTube video, and I would say you are doing well. The hover that you did in the video there was quite level, and fairly steady, which is good. As long as you can still do that, I don't think it really matters where your hands are.
I do have a few suggestions though based on what I saw. Your handles look like the shorty 9 inch handles. You may want to try out some 13 inch or 15 inch handles and see what you like. Most people fly on 13" when flying a rev 1.5.
Another thing is to try adding pigtails to your handles. What this means is to add about 4 inches (my personal recommendation, but these lengths can vary) of bridle line to the top of the handles, and 2 inches of bridle line to the bottoms of the handles. Then, tie knots in these lines every 3/4 of an inches (could be 1/2, 1 or whatever) on both the top and bottom. You can then use these knots to make adjustments to the line. I would suggest adding some more brake (pulling the bottom lines in a bit) to center your self. I notice that when you are flying inverted, your wrists are curved back really far, which is uncomfortable (at least for me). So if you pull the brakes in a bit, you won't have to flex your wrists as far, but you will have to pull your wrists back more to fly forward.
