The Kyosho one does look cool. I have one from the same place I got the Mini-Z Cam which is really fun:

Desktop Rover (http://www.plantraco.com/cgi-bin/af/b.cgi/358)

It not only provides a great diversion by driving over stuff on your cluttered desk, but if you have 2 or more they can play laser tag! Also there is a PC interface available for remote remote control!

Damn I want that remote control blimp. I saw one in Skymall magazine. Badass.

Then you'd have to get the Cam too!

man, thats a peeping toms dream! :D (Hey, why isnt there a laughing emoticon?). But It would be awsome. And if the blimp comes in black, that would be super awsome for night-time covert ops. ;)

Dude you have no idea, I could fly that thing around the building see who my noisy neighbors are, peep in on the couple that lives next door with the not so mysterious thumping noise in the middle of the night. Best of all, anyone with a TV can tune in! hahahahaha

PorscheGuy964, you've seen the Mini-ZRacer.com Cam Car, right?

we had it running when we were racing tonight, it's great. We've got lights installed and everything (including the battery) inside now.

Whoa thats cool,
does the weight effect the way it handles?

Yes, there is a lot of extra weight so it slows it down a bit, but I've moved the battery to midship configuration so it still handles pretty well. Here's some updated pics, I need to update the article too:

That definitely looks like a project in need of a truck/SUV body.
