Small Blimps

Does anyone know anything about small blimps?

One of the Calrocs marketing programs for 2011 is a large push to get attention back to the tire companies. Goodyear loved the blimp idea and it's likely we can get another company on board too. Problem is all the reading I'm doing for small blimps says they are indoor use only. I assume that is because of winds carrying them away.

I anyone a blimp expert and can tell me what I need to be looking for?


thanks


Tony K

Why can't I use a 4 foot blimp outdoors? Why is it that all the 8 foot blimps are for outdoors?

what kind of wind speed makes flying a blimp a bad idea?

If I had a 8 mph wind that day, could I just tether the thing?

Anything else I need to know?
