You need to set a child/parent combo.
Have an empty srf (null.srf) as assigned to elevator. Have a child srf (Head.srf) assigned as a rudder within that.
Now the elevator CLA will move the head up and down, but the rudder will move it left and right. Any combination of inputs can make it look in any direction. So elevator up, and rudder left will make the head look up and to the left.
Finally: Reverse engineer. If you've seen another model do something, have a look at how it works in the appropriate tools (Blender). You'll be amazed at how much you can learn this way. I reverse engineered YSFlight Netcode for years and the results have been telling. I built off the work of those before me (VincentWeb/Eric). You don't have to reinvent the wheel to understand how it works and make a better wheel - that's true for all facets of life.

The key is to create the 3D the pilot model and make sure the helmet is centred around the origin of the 3D editor you are using, import into Blender and move it to correct position in Blender itself.
Open in DNMVIEWER, Highlight the helmet object, click and drag to make it a child object, link to aileron and add STAS.
