Airships were the most fascinating aircraft, ever crossed the skies and forever will be (well, maybe one day Imperial Star Destroyers will be a bit cooler, but till then airships absolutely rule). So, why not build your own? Thanks to modern materials and electronics, RC-airships can be incredible fast and agile while consuming very low energy and they are really fun to fly. The Documentation will explain in fast and easy steps how to get the silent_runner airship running. For more details email us at info (a) windreiter.de or join the airship regatta mailinglist firstname.lastname@example.org
The building instructions for the current iteration are found here: tutorial i4
Update 2020-02-05: Note, that there are a few more silent_runner iterations now out there! Hopefully we´ve soon time to update the wiki.
