Inverted V tail setup

I just want a sanity check on how to set up an interted V tail. I am making a twin boom UAV for my wireless camera and I am going to use the wing and V tail from a HLG glider I bought a while ago. The V tail will be inverted though and the tip of each part of the tail will attach to the booms.

The picture below is looking from behind the airplane. Does that look correct to you guys?

That's correct assuming that the red parts are the moving parts.

I thought so but I feel better now that I have a second opinion... You treat them like rudders, not alierons.....

thanks!
