whats interesting, is that you have to pulse left and right to go forwards and hold one or the other button to turn it. so its only 2ch, but you get 3 functions out of it: left and right, forwards, and tilt up or down. very interesting. i also wonder if they are on 2.4ghz as i see no antenna or IR emitters.

Very cool. Who's gonna be the first to mod one? Maybe make the pectoral fins into functional ailerons?

my guess is it shifts the ballest foreward and back, or tilts the 'tail fin' to change thrust angles. very cool. gotta try that with a DSM2. should not be that hard. just need a big balloon.

Fill it with Hydrogen instead of Helium, and I'll bet this would be a Real Blast!
