you can contact me directly, we can supply you with either the latex ballons or a much better PE balloon like seen in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_UeAghJPI4
Both lift about 200 g and have a volume of about 300 l.…"
"It seems like the Blimpduino is no longer available. So to get the board, you need to make it on your own.
You can find another open source airship with largely available components here:www.silent-runner.net"
"We´ve just started the silent_runner DIY Kit for crowdfunding, have a look here: https://www.startnext.com/silent-runner
It´s pretty different from the BlimpDuino but a good and robust airship platform to start with."
"With the current design just 40 g, because we tried to keep it as small as possible. But the payload is fully dependent on the size of the envelope, so if you use a bigger one you can easily scale up the payload. Just give us a note, in this first…"
"Hey, sounds great. The project was rather intended to give people the opportunity to build a nice airship suited to their needs without doing all the research on their own.
At the moment we´ve not yet tested any autopilot on the ship, even though…"
sounds like a great project.Actually outdoor airships should be controlled in yaw and nick by control surfaces such as rudders in the rear of the ship. In normal operation there is always wind flow that has to be overcome by forward…"
"In the meantime a group of students in Switzerland built a similar but different concept. Even though it got 4 engines it´s not really a quadcopter. But it has an autopilot implemented and a bizarre look and flight characteristics.
It´s capable of…"
Hi Guys,I´m in involveld in several airship and DIY related projects. For example we´re at the moment trying to fit an Ardupilot in this science vessel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNne5dP-eeMAnyway, I wondered a long time why there are not much…
"After blimpduino died, you can have a look at the http://www.silent-runner.net/ project. It´s not yet autonomous, but pretty fast and it also features a flexible arduino for advanced controlling. We try to start from the very beginning and also…"
