Default Need help on tail control setup...

Im trying to build a plane which can fly good, fly in most of the dimensions in flight but use the least amount of servos... so my optios are elevons, tailerons, vtails and regular rudder and elevator...

but i need to be able to roll also, so im down to elevons and tailerons...
now can tailerons work on a plane with long wings? ill draw photos of different setups that im referring too...

any tips and help would be appreciated..

What's wrong with a flying wing and elevons, just about the simplest model to design and build.

Have you checked out the 'Delta and Flying Wing' forum - http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=8

You could try building a model with an inverted vee tail.
The advantage of inverting the vee is that the same deflections that generate yaw also induce a rolling moment in the correct direction.
