Default Flaperon / Elevon mixing HELP!

Anyone know how to do a flaperon/elevon mix like in this video with a dx8? Also, what are the pros/cons of this type of mixing? Seems as if the real F-22 has its control surfaces setup this way.

How does it fly with that setup? Any bad tendencies? Just got the mixing down minus the flaps.

Here's the updated* video.
