Can I buy your airship?

Not yet. Our airships are still under development. However we would love to hear from you and your application! Maybe we can integrate something that you would need. If you would like to be notified once we start selling, please sign up for our newsletter. If you would like to be among the first to receive our products, please drop us a line!

Can your airship explode like the Hindenburg?

No. Our airships are filled with helium. This is a noble gas that is not flammable, nontoxic and odorless. It does give you a funny voice though! 🐭

Will your airship even fly in windy conditions?

Yes, our airships can fly in windy conditions just like aerodynes (helicopters, multicopters, fixed wings). The maximum airspeed they can endure is dependent on the drag of the airship and its installed power. oblX, e.g., is designed for an airspeed of up to 30 km/h. Due to their large volume airships usually have a higher drag than comparable aerodynes. On the other hand airships don't have to spend energy for staying airborne in the first place. Like that power systems and endurable airspeed can have similar dimensions up to a certain threshold. Airships won't go supersonic any time soon, though.
