You are ready for ailerons if you fly a plane with ailerons and succeed!

As a practical matter if you have an instructor and a buddy box or an instructor that has a method of easily assuming control of the plane you can confidently start out with ailerons from the beginning.

If you're on your own, you need to feel absolutely comfortable flying your three channel plane. You know when your predominate feeling goes from "don't crash, don't crash" to "wow, this is fun, wow, this is fun." When you've turned that corner and crash rarely and know exactly what you did wrong if you do crash, you're ready for the next step: ailerons.

But you REALLY only know if you're ready if you try it and succeed!
