Default Setting up Ailerons

Been 5 years since I setup an aileron plane. When I want to turn right, the right airleron should be up the the left airleron down... right?

My right/left are based on looking from behind the plane.

yes. think of it this way. when the right aileron goes up the wind coming over the wing will cause it to drop(hence turn right), when the left aileron comes up then it will drop (hence turn left). now if both where to come up then the whole plane will drop and the surfaces will act like an elevator.

Yes, very good.

The key here is that your view is from the rear of the plane. Use this view also for setting your rudder direction. Right stick makes the rudder (and plane) go right.

Good luck!
