Stupid question re electronic stabilizers

Iíve used stabilizers on aircraft with 3 axis control surfaces but wonder how to hook up for a rudder/elevator model. Except during take off, you donít really need the rudder stabilized as roll is the axis that needs stabilizing the most. The dihedral causes roll when yaw is applied but if pitch and yaw are the channels selected to be stabilized will the induced yaw be sufficient to correct roll?

Just plug the rudder cable into the aileron channel. When you don't have aileron the plane is designed such that the primary effect of rudder is roll with yaw being secondary.
