VTAIL configuration

Currently I'm working on a 3Dprinted quad vtail.
I have read a lot on this forum about vtail frame configuration but it is still not 100% clear to me.
As I see a vtail can be made in 4 different ways. see image:

Is my image correct? Do the configs correspond to the vtail frame type?
Is it necessary to config other options?

Based upon my bench testing, as long as the angle remains the same in all four configurations, the efficiency is the same. they are all the same V-Tail, just appearance and the YAW direction varies. However, number 1 is the simplest to construct and the most durable in my opinion. As for which one is BEST, that is purely subjective.

Here is are few videos of testing done.

I am currently printing a 4 minute design via cad lol..

have you tested different angles? I was going to test a punch tomorrow... But do you have any idea which is the most efficient ?
