Quite poorly - so my friends all tell me. Actually I use both methods
depending on the scenario. My preferred method is the "carrier approach"
(that way I can also use the carrier touchdown to describe my semi-controlled
crash :) ). I find that I float less in the transition from this approach
as opposed to the forward slip approach. But I use that approach when I
find myself in traffic and can't (as you noted) just insert the carrier
