I second that!!!
I'm a subscriber myself (HDfoodie). I've been downloading copies since the "Oiseau rc" clips =)

In case you (or any others here) are interested - some old links:
http://www.pbs.org/saf/1109/video/watchonline.htm
Click on "PLAY VIDEO" for the "Is It a Bird?" segment.
The segment is really about Paul MacCready but
it shows Bob actually flying the Vulture (0:00-1:15)
and gives a brief explanation of how wingtip ailerons work (3:10-4:25)

Then there's the TWITT pages for
The Turkey Vulture:

The Seagull:

The Pelican:
http://www.twitt.org/3partdrib.html
and The Raven too:

I bought the Vulture plans years ago, but life caught up with me and I never had the chance to build it.
Maybe this winter I might have the time....
...unless I come across one Sean's birds first!!!
