That's what I am saying,, because there is no movable control surface that can induce yaw, they are affectivly "verticle stabilizers" but because they are blended so beautifully with the wing,, they are pretty much winglets.

(by winglets I made the assumption they don't move)

X8 doesn't have em. People have built em with rudders, but it's very rare
and mostly useless unless you use em together as drag brakes.
