The last week has been a blur, with Battle Blimps production and play testing at full throttle. Now that there are just a few days left in this campaign, it's time to get back to raising funds!
We're asking you to help with this final push by helping us boost the campaign on Facebook. Each of you has a different network, so this really helps. So please, post on your wall today. Example: "Battle Blimps is in its final fundraising push, with just $2000 and two days left to go! Have you seen this project yet?

Updates: Full Play Testing, Live Fire Testing *
It was amazing to see how easily people picked up the controls for Battle Blimps at Saturday's fundraiser (hosted by our friends at the Airpusher and Brainlove crews). The software, batteries, and wireless all held up flawlessly for two hours of continuous play. It didn't take long for a large crowd to gather, and soon people were coming from all directions, wide-eyed and wanting to know how everything worked. False Profit Labs is all about these From Wow to How moments!
For obvious reasons, we couldn't fly hydrogen balloons at the event, but the next day we did a full test on two hydrogen-filled PLA balloons with live ignitors. See the video below for what happened :)*
Volunteers out in Force *
Speaking of PLA balloons, we're making hundreds of these for Burning Man, tweaking software, and building parts of the Battle Blimps Aerodrome. Over the last week, we've had over a dozen volunteers come by to help out. If you're interested in coming by, let us know! We can use people with any number of skills.
