Here's a Youtube post of the Japanese Birds being tinkered with. This guy has built countless birds and control systems. All without vertical fins.

Kanai-san have been dedicated to the vertical finless gliding birds for 10 years,found one his latest version plans from Japaness magzine.
the Kanai's gull glider,same as his birds' family,used seperated alirons to control the yaw which is quite interesting vs Bob's twisting wingtips.
the spec. of Kanai's gull glider:
wingspan...1520mm
lenth...620mm
RTF weight...240grams
RC channels:tail X1 servo
wing X 2 servos(seperated ailerons)
control range of the seperated ailerons: outer aileron...-45 to +5 degree
inner aileron...+25 to -5 degree
cheers
