Yeah, the cockpit view seems to be the easiest one for me, it's the most realsitic view, so I think it's the best, but that's just me!
I like using the joystick as well. I tried the keyboard, and it took too long for me to get used to it, so I switched to a joysick. It's alot easier than running your fingers over the arrow keys.
