Hi Neil
I'm at the same stage and having fun. My blimp flies ok but it goes its own way so far.
See my page.

Thanks, Donald. I continued the blimpduino thread on your comment wall. We should try to get this thing documented more completely so we can get them actually piloting right. It is fun to see it whirring around though.

Motor plugs are reversed to reverse the air flow if needed.
It looks like we have to figure out how it is working and how we want it to work by our selves.
Perhaps thats the fun of do it yourself kits.

Guys, if you're having trouble please comment on the Blimpduino home page and I'll try to help. The community can't follow the thread if you just ping-pong on each other's personal pages.

Sad news-
I left the barn door open when I went to lunch.
It must have drifted out and gone bye-bye.
I wont be starting a new one until my hobby budget builds up again.

Sorry to hear that, Donald! I've had two 26" helium balloons fly out the door after I carefully ballasted them for neutral buoyancy - they're very lively :/ I've also managed to keep at least one lucky one continuously buoyant for 11 months!
