Final Project Update: Part 1

Remote Control Blimp

For my final project, I want to make a remote control blimp. I plan to make the inflatable body and fill it with helium and use small motors for propelling and steering the blimp. I will use a joystick controller to wirelessly control the blimp.

What I've done so far...

I made a joystick controller fabduino board during week 12 with an IR LED to send signals to an IR receiver that will be on a fabduino board that will be used to control the motors.
