A new beginning for airships.

As you all know, drones are becoming popular in the United States of America, and also the Mid. East. Their are an expected 30,000 drones to be in the us by 2016. If we could build drone airships we could get the airship industry back and going again. Maybe everyone will forget about the Hindenburg Disaster, if we could get the drone airships in the air. So I have come up with a "club/organization" on airships. If your wanting to find out more information just comment below or email me at belenjohnson48@gmail.com. I would post the link to our website, but I do not want to spam up the forum.Thanks

  • I'm very interested in this thread. I'm building an rc blimp right now with a camera on it. I would love to set it up with Pixhawk to stabilize it and have it fly programs. 

  • No replys? ;/

  • Yes, you are right  Belen Johnson. Future is for drones. But we have to control them, before its too late. Even rc drones can be catastrophic, if misused. 

  • Hi so my crazy idea is to build a dirigible.  The basic design would use a geodesic dome built with carbon fiber struts.  I would use gas bags either helium or hydrogen filled. Lightweight  fireproof fabric covering, Extending from the dome would be four latticed struts for the motors.  To start it would have negative buoyancy and I could use standard flight controllers and an X4 setup.  Eventually I would want to be able to reverse the motors for landing.

    So I'd love to join up.

  • Alright, I just added a category for drone airships and balloons.
  • Will have a job for an airship that can lift < 3kg in a few weeks.   Checking out the forum soon!!!

  • this is our new forum that will suit everyone

  • Also anyone is welcome to join.
  • Well forgive me for making the my website so localized. My friend and I didn't think about what we were doing when we created the club. The name of our club is "North Mississippi Small Blimps". The website revolves around airships in general. From the great passenger airships to building drones, rcs, and even building an ultralight airship. This is the link:

    We are probably going to change the name of our club, once we get enough members.
