Tiny V tail setup
I just finished building a Tiny and need help with the V tail setup . I think I have the right/left setup right but I don't understand how the tail moving opposite of the ailerons helps . For up and down which way should the tail and aileron move ? When the tails up the ailerons go down , which way will it go ? Confused ? Thanks

Tail (elevator) up, Flaps (ailerons) down, plane goes up and vice versa.
Right tail (rudder) up, right aileron down, left rudder down, left aileron up, plane goes left and vice versa.
On a V-tail to determine which way the plane will turn, tip the plane so one or the other tail surface is vertically up (to the ground). When you look at it from the rear, it's effect will be the same as a conventional rudder.
I had quite a time getting the Tiny's surfaces mixed correctly and didn't succeed until I had the servos reversed (or not) properly. It's a bit confusing but doable.
P.S., What happens when the plane (Tiny) is inverted?
