I don't like to mix aileron and rudder because there are times, such as landing in a crosswind, that I do not want the rudder to track the ailerons. Plus, I tend to fly my T-Craft the same way I did full-scale... initiate the turn with ailerons and rudder, then maintain the turn with rudder while holding a bit of opposite aileron to keep the bank angle from increasing. The T-Craft does absolutely beautiful scale-looking turns this way! If I had aileron to rudder mixing I couldn't do that.
