RC Blimp Features
• Built using polyurethane--the best balloon material for helium retention.
• All models use ducted fan motors where the blade tips are completely enclosed. The use of ducted fans is safer than exposed large propellers. Motor power ranges from 5 amps to 50 amps and from brushed to brushless designs.
• Each RC blimp has a tail motor for superior maneuverability.
• RC blimps 13 feet and smaller use NiMH batteries, 15 feet and larger use Lithium Polymer batteries.
• Spread spectrum radios are used for all models, eliminating the risk of frequency and channel conflicts while flying.
• One-way, easy to use fill valves are included with all models
.

Custom RC Shapes:
We can construct a variety of unique shapes and sizes to suit your company's needs. A nylon cover with digital graphics can complete the look. We've made a variety of unique RC shapes including a submarine, a ufo, a bottle, an apple, a sphere and even a shark!
Email us with your specifications and we will gladly provide a quote.

Graphics Requirements:
Vectored art works best for all graphics since they can be resized without loss of quality. Typical programs used for vectored art are Illustrator, Freehand, CorelDraw! and QuarkXpress. (.ai, .eps, .pdf, .cdr, with all fonts converted to curves)
Rastered art will work only for digital graphics but MUST BE ACTUAL PRINTED SIZE. Anything smaller will not reproduce well. Typical programs used for rastered art are Adobe Photoshop and Paintshop Pro. (.jpg, .tif, .psd, 100dpi) Rastered art is not useable for vinyl or insignia graphics.
Digital graphics are only available on white or two-toned inflatables.

Urethane Colors:
Black Dark Blue Green Purple Red White Yellow
Tail Colors:
Black D. Blue Green Brown Lt. Blue Orange Red White Yellow
Vinyl Colors:

Polyurethane versus PVC

Compared to alternatives our products are more cost-effective. A major reason is that we use a better-performing material called Polyurethane, which is designed to hold the Helium molecule. Cheaper products made of PVC or urethane-coated nylon lose helium quickly - which increases your costs. That means a cheap product costs more in the long term.
