Does anybody know if I can mix the rudder to give progressive movement when I open the throttle.?

The simple answer is that it can be done and I have done it.

However, it was a while ago and I do not have the TX in front of me. From memory in the manual you have to use master -slave programming and allocate it to a switch such that it can be disabled ,

Very useful on twin engines.

 Do you mean if an engine stops on a twin ?, as I never used rudder mixing on anything other than helicopters
and that was in the days without gyros or old gyros with electric motors in them. :''

Not really. Linking the rudder movement to control the engine throttle such that for example, right rudder will reduce the throttle on the right engine and increase the left. I find this very useful to control unwanted swing at take off and it makes taxiing easier too. Once the machine is in the air, you switch it out if you want to and fly normally.

Probably ok on an electric, but throttle lag on a glow,,,  $%&

a switchable gyro would do the same thing, used a lot over here on jets,,
