There is one surface on each side of the wing - they are called elevons. The transmitter electronically operates them differentially in opposit directions for "aileron" and both moving in the same direction for "elevator"

Pull back on the elevator stick - both surfaces go up
Give left aileron - the left elevon goes up, the right one goes down.
Give a combination of left and up - the left surface goes up a lot, the right on does not go down much.

Rudder is not simulated unless you install a moveable rudder surface. Rudder is not strickly needed to control the aircraft, jet type models fly just fine with only aileron and elevator functions. Bank and yank to turn so to speak.
