So now I have a difficult choice to make:

Run dual ailerons with flaps, and have elevator/flap mixing. However only one aileron will have the gyro on it.

or

Connect the ailerons with a Y harness both running with the gyro. However loose the flaps and mixing.

or

Switch off the as3x and keep the flaps and mixing.

What would you guys do

you'll be fine with only one aileron acting as gyro controlled it will need a slightly higher setting to get the same effect but will not cause a problem in flight...
I've not played with the asx3's programing, but i have used gyros in many models for many different reasons. I've had 2, 1/12 scale mustangs that only had a the gyro controlling one aileron.
