The Velocità Kit provides you with all the high-end and custom-built parts needed to bring an airship to life. Depending on your level of skill, it may take a few days to assemble, though it is possible in one day.
The airship's electric motor is powered by a rechargeable battery and it is controlled using a high-end customisable radio handset sender and receiver (all included in the kit). We also provide you with a battery charging station as part of the kit.
The Velocità perfectly fits within the rules for the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (World Air Sports Federation) F7B class of Airship Racing.
Though international competitions have been hosted in both Germany and India, 2023 will be the first year that the World Cup points system will be implemented. With the Velocità kit, the only thing between you and becoming world champion, is practice!
