The radio systems I use allow elevon mixing control, such that I can easily adjust the amount of elevator movement that I want - relative to the amount of aileron movenemt that has been set. Separate surfaces can be used but that means I would need to use more servos. I have both plank and swept flying wing models that use elevons. I almost always want to modify the elevator and aileron movement separately.

Mechanical mixers can do this with somewhat more complexity - though the newer programmable radio systems essentially remove the need for them. They also allow quick on the field changes during a flying session.
