Playing hide and seek in the clouds

Cloudrunner is a type of ‘air jet sky’, which uses an involucre full of gas, as its accessorial force, conjugated with support propellers, as helicopters or 'drones' does.
One of the first paradigms that Santos=Dumont had broken, took place on July 4th, 1898, when he flew in his balloon called ‘Brasil’, which used hydrogen for ascensoral power in its 113m3 involucre, with only 19.7feet in diameter, the smallest balloon ever built. After that, he has broken many other paradigms up to the first flight of the ‘heavier than air”, by his14Bis.

Undoubtedly, the airship that Santos Dumont liked most was the so-called 'Baladeuse' (carriage in French), in the year de1903.

It was indeed an 'aerial chariot' with an involucre of 220m3 of hydrogen, driven by a 3hp Clement Bayard engine, this wonder came to 18.6 mph. The goal of Dumont with the 'Baladeuse' was to create an urban vehicle to serve as a practical and elegant individual transportation.

Since then, very little has been developed in relation to the individual air transportation, the autogyro and jetpack are the closest thing to it.

Since science seems to be stuck on this segment, the dream of reaching skies, jumping from cloud to cloud, after 110 years, is still a distant dream.

Order not to lose hope, the team of blog NIMPS in partnership with Blemya created in a fictional way, the 'CLOUDRUNNER', also called 'cloudracer'.
This is a type of ‘air jet sky’, which uses an involucre full of gas, as its accessorial force, conjugated with support propellers, as helicopters or 'drones' does.
Cloudriders playing hide and seek in the passing clouds 

Ascension engines of the 'Cloudrider' are not so demanded to take the aircraft from the ground, since a sophisticated gas mattress with a ‘gas mixing system’ under different pressures, almost does that alone.

It reaches great heights and the flight can be silent on some specific atmospheric conditions, favorable for disengage the engine, and its speed varies according to the wind velocity.

According to our imaginary test pilots, it is impossible to describe the emotion of playing hide and seek in the clouds, like a mischievous young angel, therefore, only a poet like Wallace Stevens to describe the sweet sensations of delight in the clouds.

“The Pleasures of Merely Circulating

The garden flew round with the angel,
The angel flew round with the cloud.
And the clouds flew round and the clouds flew round
And the clouds flew round with the clouds”.
Wallace Stevens
