Another gentleman that I have known for a number of years, Bob Hoey is fascinated with bird flight. Bob is a retired flight test engineer and for his own amusement and education, he builds and flies RC "Bird" gliders. None of his flying models have vertical stabilizers in that the wings of his aircraft produce "proverse yaw" as real birds do for coordinated turns.

Check out the following video and website for more information.

It's great to watch and hear someone who reasons and experiments his way through the design process so intelligently.
