BIC5 - NXT Blimp

Description

The model is a remote-controlled LEGOŽ blimp, which uses helium to become almost weightless. This results in the ability to fly using the LEGOŽ propellers and engines. The airship is controlled using a joystick (A designed inspired by Philippe Hurbains NXT joystick). The blimp communicates with the joystick using the build in Bluetooth connection.
