Airships have made a comeback in recent years and this radio-controlled airship from Plantraco brings them right into your living room. The helium filled 1.3 metre long Blimp has three independently controlled propellers allowing you to spin on the spot, fly in all directions and take off and land vertically using the handheld transmitter. Four operational frequencies mean you can fly up to four Blimps simultaneously and for a birds-eye view there's also an attachable wireless mini-cam that broadcasts to television at a range of up to 45 metres. The Tri-Turbofan Blimp costs US$89 and the wireless video camera costs US$120. Available in white or silver at plantraco.com.
