The Blimp Bomber – missile dropping fun around the house


The first of what will undoubtedly be many daft gadget-related ideas for Christmas – the Blimp Bomber, which will float round the house, depositing its cargo at the click of a button.

The Blimp Bomber is a new triple fan thrust version – go forwards, backwards, left or right, spin, ascend or just hover around. It’s essentially a helium-filled balloon. Fill it up, attach the turbo fan, then control it via the R/C 27MHz transmitter/receiver. There’s a target mat for bombing practice and once you’ve mastered that, you’re free to drop your load on your mates’ heads (as I’m sure it was intended).

Available in the coming weeks, you can pick it up for around £50. Helium gas is extra.
