This is a long balloon intended for fast airships, eventually suitable for outdoor use. Note, that significant pressure is needed to keep this long envelope stable.
Two gore envelope produced from robust Aluminum/Nylon/Polyethylen multilayer material by heat welding. Filling tube in tail section, with closing clip included.
These envelope types are used in model airships like the silent_runner
Created with the Gertler Shape Generator after J. Eissing.
When using the envelope be aware of:
- Sharp things

But yes, it´s so strong you can sit on it. If carefully deflated and folded after usage, these envelopes can last for many years.
