WoW! Beautiful videos!! Looks very easy, but... I think they´re more difficult to fly than an rc airplane on windy conditions. Am I right or wrong? I mean, if you loose the airship you can find it in another country. Do they have a bleed valve in case of emergency?

Mediabox...
The Indoor blimps do not have problems , if you dont have wind sources...
The Outdoors usually have bleed valves and they atre harder to operate due to weather issues...

Hello again. Interesting answers, it seems that there are two different points of view on this matter, so... pays well? How much in round figures?

Indoor I can get US500 day clean in my pocket
with no swets and half of the time flying with half a brain, only one eye open (the other one sleeping)
The only time you open both eyes ...is when a pretty babe comes to talk to you...
one cylinder of gas only to push arround in air conditioning enviroment...

Outdoor US$ 1100 clean...
Swetting at all times, with all 3 (three) eyes open...
the brain scaning the horizon every 2 seconds for indices of strong wing coming out off nowhere, heavy clouds that can suck you up...
and having to hear from the client...
"Why don´t you fly it here or ... there or... everywhere..." or how come your not flying now?...

If your limits , your luck and your Balls can take it... it is fantastic...
you might get rich sooner

At least 3 cylinders to deal with in rain, sun and storm...

1100$ is cheap we ask at lesats 3000$ / day... if many days 2500$
and we also do a contract very precise with weather conditions rain etc..
if it is impossible to fly we also earn 500$ don't forget that these $$ are peanuts for big companies but great value when you fly...

but i agree with guga indoor is easy money and if you have 15 days every month ..you pay a student 100$ day you ear almost without doing anything
6000$ a month pretty cool no?

ok = 2 days outdoor :-)

attached pict 8m outdoor for university Alicante Spain
soon 9m in Chile, 10m in Sardegna, 10m in Holland and my new hybrid police blimp.

60ft blimp demo for NHRA

For those of you who might not already know we demoed our 60 ft blimp with a full size Cini Flex HD camera gimbal for the NHRA 2 weeks ago in Phoenix AZ. ESPN and the NHRA loved it. Our footage from the blimp made the Saturday and Sunday broadcasts on ESPN2. We where told we are the first company that has introduced a new camera platform that ESPN has allowed on air within 15 minutes of them receiving the feed. We are working on obtaining sponsorship for the blimp for the rest of the season. Below are some pictures. I will post some video later.

That's VERY cool, galaxy!

Does it pass the scratch, sniff, and smell test from our buddies on the island of D.C.?
