Auto Credit Based on BurkeEnterprise's LZ-1

Hey guys, just a simple build I made on my iphone 5!

Instructions: 100% throttle and use pitch to pole- valt into the air!

Vtol up to start engines and Yaw to steer.

Report on uss. Akron: I've been very busy and it's a problematic build. Working on it

    @BurkeEnterprise OK, I like the build, won't quibble about launch techniques.

    But yea, top speed is 14 mph at 1/2 scale. Pitch is ballast movement. Pretty accurate for the lz 1-4

    @Stingray throttle 100, wait a bit then pitch up hard and when it hits over 30 degrees, release and start motor. You should be able to launch from runway.

    Note: requires air launch. Speed seems somewhere between 2 and 14 mph, basically a balloon that goes up and down. I like it!

    @Davisplanez you can! The weight and lift are exact though so they'd have to be weightless
