Mixes: they're a trim step in making a plane fly accurately. we don't want the plane rolling or yawing if we pull or push on the elevator, similarly we don't want pitching or yawing when we put in a roll input... so by the same logic we don't want the plane pitching or rolling with a yaw input

so, mix as needed, leave the mixes on all the time... it's just part of trimming a plane to fly to the inputs that you input, and nothing else.

coupling effects every maneuver with yaw input, it's just that it's most obvious when flying knife edge.
