Question Mixing ailerons to rudder?

I have read some information on this subject. Is it advisable to mix some rudder to aileron for getting nice straight rolls? Would this then apply to almost every plane out there then to get a nice roll? Or is there some adverse effects also? Thanks.

The adjustment we use to get axial rolls is aileron differential and practice. Adding a rudder mix is not the correct way to fix adverse yaw on an aerobatic model

Not many planes will do nice axial roles .... just not in their makeup based on the design.. a cub for example.. or really any high wing plane will struggle mightily with an axial roll. Don't start mixing the rudder.... for you'll never know how to use it properly when you need it as in a cross wind landing... just my opinion...

Mixing rudder to ailerons prevents the tail from dropping to the inside of a turn. But only when you are right side up. When you are inverted it works backward. So your roll might be nice and linear for the first 180 degrees but it would look terrible for the second half.
