That is a very subjective thing. I prefer to use my profiling software and assign keys and then assign the keys to the stick. Hit the Nugget's Guide in my sig to see the essential basics....

well...there a lot of keys to be mapped.....so make them easy to understand...

these are my settings from my User/settings.ini folder

if you are just learning and don't use the complex engine stuff yet...then no need to map keys until you need them
also some things only need to be mapped if you are flying off carriers

I don't know if there is a favorite mapping of controls. Its whatever works best for you. I try to use the letter that starts the word for the control. All my lights are tied to L; landing lights are Control L, Nav lights are shift L and cockpit lights are L.
