All parts are cheap and easy to assemble. Build your airship today and stop wasting battery power to low efficiency planes and quadrocopters, but start over with endless endurance and amazing grace.
The first silent_runner had some nice testflights, demonstrating good agility, speed and even crash robustness:
The whole project is undergoing finetuning and improvements, thus feedback is much appreciated.

A silent runner won the airship regatta held by the Airship Association:
And an outdoortest was flown recently:
Performs quite nice in calm conditions.
Another silent_runner was built with some about 16 year old pupils during a school project:Â http://youtu.be/2Egyc1NfYWk
Watch the crash actions in the end ;)
It was fun and the students were quite able to do all the tasks to build one.

Printed parts as listed here should be sliced and printed with care as they are optimized for low weight and thus have a filigree structure.
The full documentation including a full list of parts can be found under the following link:
A quick guide is available here:
The Arduino code is available at Github:
While thinking about how to build the RC-airship, you can print the thing thingiverse.com/thing:33580 and play around with a little racing airship model :)
Or print the silent_runner key chain!
This project is initiated and together with the greatly appreciated help of other helium heads developed by the Projekt Windreiter team: windreiter.de
