yep, for both controllers in each hand.

you mean the top of the player box? that's where they should go.

If i toggle flying and just move my arms / triggers, nothing seems to happen?
Thats correct, think of it like this:
You have 4 rockets on each hand at the top, bottom, front, back. Thumbsticks control the thrust of those rockets. Closing your hands increases the thrust to the forward rockets (this is a bug, it should increase both forward and backward thrust)
Your body has physics on it, and the trust is applied at the hands position. Try flying with just one hand to get the feel, then you can balance it out with the second hand for more control.
