What's the cost?

Do they actually have them to deliver?

I just wrote to them to find out.

What I do not understand is that average 15 feet blimps have the same diameter as this 33 feet blimp ?

Or is it because of the maximum width authorized for trailers ?

I have to admit that one may compare this picture's weird blimp shape with powerblimp's videos which look much more vconvincing.

The chinese site has no video whatsoever, I wonder why.

When one is ready to invest that kind of money, I guess that the risk of purchasing a bad blimp quite offsets any small price difference.

There are video's of the China blimp available. However all the videos I have watched of the blimp are while it is operating a few feet from the ground. It did not look as smooth in the air or as controllableas a Carolina Airship. but keep in mind that it is a few thousand less as well.

Tempted but worried? Well, I know a thing or two about Chinese blimp manufacturers, and particulary about the one everybody has been talking about. In short, the savings are real, but the headaches are real too.

the best part is 120 km/h in top speed witha 62 zenoah...

on our 43 ft with 2 x 80 ccm3 over boosted we just reach briefly 70 km/h that is allready huge for an airship!
but offen chinese count ground speed and 60 km/h wind + 60 km/h zepp speed ok that can work!

for pricing well really cheap 10m at 9000$ but with one fixed motor we can do that even for 8900$!!!!

cheers phil

Chinese Blimps have a WARP velocity

Just like the Enterprise from Star Trek
