How would you set up control surfaces on a lifting body glider?

Standard elevon mix on the tail (make sure you can get lots of UP for the flare). Rudders are not especially effective on them.
Your elevator is really going to be your throttle, too (just like a glider). At high alpha you WILL experience a lot of oscillations on roll - just let it rock.
A friend of mine flew the original model that now hangs in the AMA museum.
