blimp-4_0

 

Funky Shiitake Mushrooms, a high school design team from Fremont, CA, have created a low cost airship they call Skittles the Second. Skittles is a remote control robotic blimp, complete with 4 reversible propellers, wireless video, and 2.4 a GHz remote control. For the future, the group plans to give the ship autonomous capabilities, in order to avoid losing another drone in strong wind.
