One type of control that I've always thought to be natural for flying wings is the kind employed by the Dunne series of flying wing biplanes. It didn't have elevon mixing instead used two control sticks, one on either side of the pilot, to directly control each elevon. The pilot is the elevon mixer.

To do this with RC equipment I guess you'd need to modify your TX and install a spring on the throttle stick. Then employ some other input for throttle control (one of the knobs on your TX?). For a glider, you don't need throttle. And some of my planes I fly on full throttle 100% of the time, those planes could probably be configured with one of the switches as throttle.
