The silent_runner

Airships were the most fascinating aircrafts, 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 or join the airship regatta mailinglist
