From the rear of the model, for a right bank/turn, the right wing would be the "down" wing, and the aileron on that wing would be up.
Depending on the model, you might find that the ailerons need less down movement than up. We used to do this
mechanically years ago, and the modern computerized TX's usually have the capability to do this with with servo settings when you
have a servo and channel for each aileron.

most if not all "left/right" issues are normally viewed as though you are in the cockpit of the plane. I can remember my buddy's dad turning away from the plane and looking over his shoulder as he flew his planes coming towards him to avoid the left-right confusion.

When standing over the plane looking forward of direction of flight for the pre-take off run up, whichever way that you move the stick, that aileron should be UP.
