Radio Controlled Blimp is an aerial vehicle, a type of an airship without internal structure in which case the balloon envelope, when filled with lighter-than-air gas (such as helium or hydrogen) lifts the complete system in air. A control box called the gondola carrying drives and wireless electronic controller fitted underneath the envelope controls the movement of the complete system in air.
