Default Steampunk Airships

The Steampunk crowd has been doing indoor (ballroom) airship races for several years. There are build instructions, rules and videos on re-purposing Air Hogs type planes into airships.

Look for Racing Airships at Steampunk Empire Symposium on youtube

Is there some 3 channel Air Hogs or something they can use for the light weight RC gear?
