    The configuration of these models technically should call the trailing edge movable surfaces elevons (combined elevator/aileron). Raising both surfaces evenly does indeed increase lift. The advice here is possibly misleading; the plane with elevons will bank toward the higher elevon (thus the side with the higher elevon cannot have more lift). Just contemplate how ailerons work, its the differential lift!
