Why don't birds have a rudder when airplanes require them?

Why don't birds have a rudder when airplanes require them?

I thought this was an incredibly fascinating video. It's a bit long, but patience is a virtue! It touches on the ways birds are different from airplanes (or even flying wings) and the things that birds know and do intuitively that maybe we haven't fully figured out (or maybe now we have?)

I don't want to spoil it any more with my own comments ... just, just, just watch it!

My favourite part the Q&A. Pure Gold. Your drone section is also favourite to me.

Thanks for sharing
