Who doesn’t love blimps? They’re quiet and slow but leave a huge impression. This kit goes together easily using basic hand tools and the included directions, and has almost everything you need to get airborne; you supply R/C gear, servo, battery, and helium.

The vinyl balloon can be decorated with paints or computer-cut graphics, which is perfect for sporting events, trade shows, or just for fun.

Add a few coins for ballast, and you can fly the blimp indoors with precision by using a gentle hand on the controls. In flight it looks amazing, just like a smaller version of the real thing.

I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I’m a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
