New Choctaw Casino Airship for Dallas Stars Hockey

Its about time the season finally got started. I finally got to set up and test fly a new 18 foot airship for the Dallas Stars (NHL) at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. Ship was another turn key set up from Mobile Airships with additional modifications added to allow it to be docked 125 foot overhead in the rafters at the arena. Saves time and much helium. Overall an excellent flying ship. ESC for tail does not give 100 percent directional control both ways. This is normal on the Castle Creation car ESCs and they are looking at the problem themselves at this time. Once that is reprogrammed the ship will be very nice. Its not bad now but you have to plan a little further ahead on directional control. Carries about an hour and half of power on board with 3 3/5000 mah batteries. Eflite 10s on all three motors. Castle Creations ESCs utilized throughout. Spektrum 6I with a receiver in the gondola and another in the tail do all the work. We have about 25 games prescheduled for the season this year as it is only three month late getting started due to the lockout. I looks like it may run into June this year. ed
