Ft Worth (Texas) Boat Show


Marcus

Followed suit this weekend and spent all day Saturday at the Boat Show here in Cowtown. My little airship is about 2.5 meters in length and a very gentle flyer. The TSS Megan (after youngest grandaughter) made here initial outing and proved a gentle lady and easy to fly if a little underpowered by geared N20 brushed motors. I picked the little rig up from a friend who only flew it once, been in storage for about seven years but she proved herself quite nice. Changed receiver to Spektrum 6 and had to build a coupon drop in a few hours as I didn't get the call to Friday morning for the gig Saturday. Partner and I spent over 7 hours actually airborn for the day and they got their moneys worth for sure. Dropped in excess of 125 coupons on and off during the day plus working two exhibit halls full of boats, campers, and such. The power train will be changed out this weekend to a couple of GWS LHS's to increase the thrust and to use 7.2 Li Polly batteries but other than that she will continue to fly as I received her.

Here are a few shots of yesterdays sortie. I about walked myself to death going up and down the isles all day long, I'm dang near to darn old to be doing that kind of work. ed

TSS = Texas State Ship (ok I can't help it, I'm a native)

Hey Ed do you have any pictures of the coupon dropper you made? I'd be interested in something similar. Also, what insurance provider did you use for the event?

Sorry no pictures on the coupon release but for the little bird I made a simple dropper that handled 4 coupons due to lifting capacity of vehicle and time. I'll take some shots when I can, maybe tonight.

On the question of insurance, Lloyds of London is the carrier at present.

Very nice events indeed Jason...
You can see people looking at your blimp in every picture...
this shows that this type of closed event is going all over the world...
and this is a Marketing tendency already in many countries...
Congratulations Jason...

Over 12 Hours Airborne at NBC5/T39 Health/Fitness Exposition


Made a two day event in Dallas this weekend, working a little yellow 13 footer throughout the hall. Total flight time was a little over 12 hours and my feet are killing me right now but I had a great time and met a lot of nice people. My voice went away about noon on Saturday and I haven't found it yet. Got the old keyboard going so it is not too bad. A number of youngsters got a little stik time as well as my little brother who helped me hostle the airship throughout the weekend. This is my third show flying for NBC so I guess they like what service I provide. Takes a little hustling but that is the name of the game. A few shots attached. ed
