have a look at the top of the forum, look for the flying wing cg calc thread.
as for elevons, untill you post some dimentions to the wing you have built knowone can really help out much.

If you do ballast on the wingtips (funtack, paper clips, etc.), you get the same reaction as balancing stuff in the fuselage with less weight. if the battery or something is already free to move around, then do that, but i'm just sayin'.
