That's awesome! Maybe you could get a permanent sponsor for the fins for a great walking shoe manufacturer!

Phil, make no apologies. That video is rock solid! I'm sure the original quality (not youtube quality) is very nice. Electric? What's your runtime?

Philip,
I noticed you fly those blimps all nose heavy...
Also the entire blimp is heavier than air... when you reduce motor power the blimp automatically nose down and starts coming down... how heavy are they?

your ' totally right!
gondola was fixed too "front" and i was lazy to move it a bit back ward
it did not affect the flight too much as we wanted "fast" flights
we are generally 2 Kg too heavy
better would be to fly 1 kg too heavy but with big batt and camera we were a bit too heavy :-)
next time i will use a 8m but did sell them all

cheers and happy carnaval
