To get the ideal setup which is both servos operating in the same relationship with the control horns the best way is a reversing Y which causes the servos to operate in reverse rotation to each other.
The best Ys of this type have a potentiometer which allows dead centering of one servo to the other.
If you have a computer radio with at least one slave function you can get the same affect from the TX of course,which is the easiest way to do it...

Or you might consider using 2 channels if your radio allows for it instead of a harness.

Just an option

Actually, you don't need a reversing Y on ailerons, just a standard Y will do. Just remember to put the servo arms either both on the inside toward the fuse or both on the outside toward the wing tips and you will be fine!

Now, the elevators are a different story!
