V-Tail on Elevon mixing?

Ive hooked up my v tail servos onto the elevon mixing channels.

Rx now buried in the fuselage.

Will it be ok to use elevon mixing with a v-tail?

Is the V-tail the only control surface?

With normal V-tail mixing, the controls still always move in the same direction.

With elevator input, both elevator 'halves' move up and down. With rudder input, both 'halves' still move left and right.

With elevon mixing, you get opposite deflection since the elevon is acting as an elevator and an aileron. With a V-tail, the tail is acting as an elevator and a rudder.
