I've been flying an 8ft blimp with a single 50mm fan in the gondola and a 50mm fan in the tail.

Both are reversible but not very efficient in reverse. The gondola fan has up and down rotation.

We have zero payload capacity and we have been overfilling with helium for 2 seasons so now it's leaking pretty badly.

I want to upgrade the electronics and drive system. I'm trying to talk them into going to a 12' envelope to offer greater payload capacity but I don't know if I will be successful.

Does anyone have any suggestions for upgrading the electronics, keeping it as light as possible and being able to transfer it to a 12' blimp?

I don't have much of a budget so I need to do it myself.

Thanks
Craig
