4 Attachment(s)
I've decided that I dont have enough time to devote to this side project, and its time for a garage sale....up for sale is my rc hot air balloon kit.....

It was built for me in March 2006 by www.modelballoon.com , and I have used it as a still/video camera platform. I've hauled up to 12-15 lbs with no problem. Was successfull in shooting photos and video from 50 ft, all the way to 500+ ft (I'm estimating, it can go wayyyy up) Average flight times of about 20-30 minutes. Cost per flight of about $5 each (just the cost of propane) It has only 10 flights on it, and the balloon is in perfect like new condition.

Heres whats included:
Model Balloon Series 2 Ready to fly: ($2100)
12v inflation fan (rigged up new car fan with battery clips, $150)
900ft of heavy duty teather rope and spool ($100)
Propane refill adapter ($25)
(The propane tanks are not included since they can not be shipped, they are only $4/ea at a local hardware store)

Value of $2350.00. Make me an offer....
