Close your eyes for a second, and try to imagine you're designing this new generation Airship.
The above diagram is a simple sketch to bring it to life and make it more realistic.
- Blue ellipse represents the balloon inflated with Hydrogen or Helium
- Gray rectangular box on top of the balloon is something like a solar panel or a cover plain object material.
- Yellow boxes represent propellers used to steer this Airship.
- Dark red rectangular object below the blue balloon is the payload.
Assuming the blue balloon is inflated with enough gas to lift the total weight of this Airship. Am wondering whether this Airship would withstand harsh windy conditions due to it's payload, a colleague told me i'd add holes in between the payload object or make the payload object flexible in the way that it can swing freely from the balloon.
This got me so confused. Am also interested in learning best practices for designing less bumpy airships that can withstand harsh conditions.
