Did you use aileron differential?
I don't use significantly different differential than I did on ruddered airplanes. Yes, you have to fly a bit differently here and there, but after a week or two you hardly notice it.

Flaps down I have 100% differential programmed... IE only up deflection and turning isn't much of an issue.
