NanoBlimp takes your RC skills to the next level

If remote controlled helicopters, planes and cars no longer give you a thrill, you should check out the NanoBlimp from Plantraco. This tiny blimp kit comes with a standard party balloon and a gondola that has 3 motors/propellers that you can control for navigation. Also included is a two-stick proportional transmitter/charger and 10 latex balloons. You have to supply the 4 AA batteries for the transmitter and helium for the balloon. Unless you moonlight as a balloon animal making clown, you’ll probably need to get yourself a home-use helium tank. A quick check shows that you can buy non-refillable tanks from Walmart for $35. If you’re ready for blimp dog fights, you can purchase the NanoBlimp now for $49.99.

    Nanoblimp Dogfights are super fun!

    Setting up the product can require some intelligence by the end user, but these Nanoblimps are awesome actually.

    Now that looks like fun! I never could get them little helicopters to stop hitting the ceiling 😉
