Help building an rc blimp


Hey all,

I am thinking of building an indoor/outdoor rc blimp, possibly around 10 ft in length. What material should I build it of, and where should I get it? How do I put the material together? What should I use for power, control, etc? Thanks for bearing with a complete newb. I have experience in quads and fixed-wing building, but nothing of the sort in lighter than air flight.

Thanks.

Start with one of these. Add a foot to the length, and add simple rudders and elevators behind non gimbled props. DO NOT attempt to fly it out doors.
