I think you've got that backward - from the back, looking at the V-tail, right stick should pull on the left flap, left stick should pull on the right flap.

I hate to be a party pooper, but I just checked my FirebirdXL, and BykrDan is right.

If you push the stick right, the left tail flap should come up. If you push the stick left, the right tail flap should come up.

Enjoy!
