U12 Unwrapped For Flight

U12 Unwrapped For Flight - LabJack

Surveillance Blimp Gondola

Pavel Tyutin, a tinkerer from Russia, constructed a surveillance blimp using some laptop components, aluminum framing, and a U12 with the casing removed to control the engines.  The blimp's main function is to gather very stable video for a tv show.  

See the designer and more on his photos page, or watch a video of the gondola starting up its engines via the LabJack.
