thanks
Not a stupid question! Right stick is used for primary turning control, which is usually ailerons. For 3-channel airplanes that use rudder, the rudder servo is connected to the aileron channel, so the right stick is still used for primary turning control, which in this case is the rudder, not ailerons. Out of the box, the Radian will have the rudder plugged into the aileron channel, so you'll turn with the right stick not the left.
