Radio Controlled Airship

This is a fully functional, free-flying model airship which I designed and built in 1991 for advertizing services in indoor areas. The helium filled model is 14 feet long overall, and operates by radio control using three electric motors for maneuvering. It is capable of lifting up to 3.3 pounds of payload on top of it's own weight, allowing it to be fitted with a lightweight video camera and transmitter for live aereal television pictures.
