Create L'il Ad Zepplins (L-Ad Zepplins for short) to advertise products or services along the interstate. These minature blimps would get more visibility than a tethered baloon since they would be moving. The zepplins would include a GPS system and be programmed to fly a specific path up and down the
interstate. The zepplins would have solar panels on them to recharge the battery during the day and there would be a small light on either side to display the advertisement at night.

(Click on the RC Blimps button when the page loads.) These folks seem to be thinking along the same lines as the author, but their limitation seems to be the battery life needed to sustain the radio controls. While solar panels would solve the problem for exterior daylight flights, it wouldn't help when used in indoor arena locations or night-time exterior conditions. [jurist, Nov 05 2004]
