Hi,
I'm working on a project for an air platform to inspect roof top.
R/C helicopters like those that we fly requires extensive training and hence not really suitable. Then there is this problem of smashing windows with the main rotor blades.
I'm wondering if there are any r/c blimps/airship that can fly outdoors?

An for those who are familiar with airship design, is it possible to achieve flight stability without having a very big airship? I notice that most airships are very big in size. In my project, I'm looking at airship of around 2m long.

Any advises?

I think, at $105,000.00 (for the bigger one), it might be cheaper to hire an aerial platform for a day to have a look at your roof
