Up for sale is my Giant remote control Hot air balloon!!

This balloon is a great opportunity to make money taking pictures and advertising with banners. You will be amazed on how it draws a crowd. If you need to fly in tight quarters (like a car show), no problem tether it. The best part is fly for hours on just a few $$ of fuel. I even have the adapter to refill the small propane tanks from a big barbeque tank.
It has about a 4 foot flame when you ignite the burner and sounds exactly like a real full size balloon. It fits in a car trunk easily. If you need insurance you can get it for around 500 a year. You can fly this at night as well as during the day.

Envelope is constructed with 24 nylon vertical gores, each starting with a NOMEX balloon fabric at base panel. Constructed with one 3/4 oz rip stop nylon panel and manually operated rip out Velcro top. It is almost "Ready to FLY." It is a 24 Gore Radio Controlled Hot Air Balloon that is fully equipped with Aluminum Gondola, Propane Tanks, Burner and electronics! All you would need to add is your radio TX and RX. It retails for 2600. It has a blue ring around the top, a white equator, and a green base. The white equator was used as an advertising platform. You can have 4 banners on this balloon at one time.
$1900 or best offer!!

Any questions let me know.

That is pretty cool!

I wonder, Could I put my mother in law in it and just cut it loose?

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

Great idea, sadly my mother in law is too fat to fit in a full size hot air balloon. Pretty cool though, it does seem like something you could make money with. Good luck with the sale.

How do you control it, and how long does it take to assemble?
Lift capacity?

You control the burner by remote control. 10 to 15 min to assemble. I’m not sure on the max lifting capabilities but it can easy carry a 360 degree 3 axis camera mount, camera and downlink

So you can just control it up an down like a regular blimp then?

How and where do you attach a 360 mount without having any issues with landings?

Yep or tether it to you or the ground. The mount attaches to the gondola (SP??). You can run the mount with the standard heli landing gear for protection or without and grab the balloon out of the air when its landing
