Default Windcrafter Carangifoil airship

This is not quite an airplane, but rather an RC controlled semi-rigid airship as near as I can tell, but would seem to have aerial photography applications... if it's for real. Check this out:

You'll need IE (Internet Explorer) as your browser to have any luck viewing. Is anyone familiar with this?

Low pressure helium, airfoil shaped gas bags, electric motors,... what do you folks make of it?

If it weren't so expensive I'd buy one to find out for myself. []
