Not to be persnickity, but you really aren't building 'one less surface.' You're still building the same area and weight of tail surface, but you're just distributing it differently and putting the mounting point of both of them on the end, instead of a conventional horizontal where the mount is in the middle.There is one real advantage, one tailsurface less which slightly lowers complexity...
In the end, you're actually building exactly the same amount of structure. I guess you're building one less tip, but that's not much of an advantage.
