High AR flying wing for soaring

I am planning another high aspect ratio wing for soaring.I dont want to cut too much into the width of the wing for the elevons , and would like to avoid drag where they meet the wing at their ends.I thought of adding them on as an extension of the trailing edge,as flat , thin plates a few centimetres wide.Any ideas on what extending the trailing edge with very little thickness does to the performance of an aerofoil would be appreciated.I intend to use a light fin and rudder on a carbon rod extension, turned with fine strings, to combine/mix with the elevons to improve the turn.
