Wanted: A 4m indoor blimp envelope for sale?


Hi,

I'm looking for a blimp envelope between 3.5-4 (m) (12-13 ft.) long, that comes with fins,filling valve. Color, or material is not a big concern.

If you've got one, please PM me or reply in here. Sometimes prices are not mentioned on a website, or sometimes I could not find the right lenght. So it would be easier if you PM me (or reply here) with the price if you don't mind

My budget is tight. Smaller blimps are welcomed as well!

According to my calculations a blimp that's 3.5 (m) long x 0.6 m (Diameter) should be able to lift (2.5 kg-5.5lb, this mass includes the gondola,fins,fans,motors,payload,etc), so please do mention the lift capability.

Thanks

Can you give me the link to that $450 - 4 meters outdoor blimp ?

I'm asking because I saw only $1000+ indoors on Southern.

Anyway, is that R/C blimp or just the envelope ?

I'm looking for some indoor - about 2.0 - 3.0 meters R/C indoor blimp for less then $600.

Thank you!

Dinu,

It is just the blimp, no rc included (tethered blimp 13 feet).

I am trying at the moment to gather the necessary elements to make an RC blimp out of it.

blimpguys


Yes, the guys from mobileairships.com (blimpguys.com) are proffesionals. I have exchanged some e-mails with them and they are cool.

It seems like the prices for indoor blimps are pretty much the same on all the vendors, so I have two options: 1) buy the complete r/c indoor blimp from blimpguys or 2) buy the tethered blimp and then try to energize it with r/c - but this option is time consuming and the final product may not be so reliable.

So, I'll just go with blimpguys.
