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.
Just to be clear, so the mixes set up on a KE will continue to work in a high beta KE? Or do you need to get fancy for high alpha/beta, and have mix regions where the perecentage changes based on deflection?
Also, are the mixes airspeed dependant--guess not or you'd need a pitot tube with telemetry.
