I've just seen baumgartner jumping from 39k meters....and i wondered...
a balloon! that's brilliant! Lets make a flying lego connected to a balloon filled with helium!
That could be the first really flying lego :P
something balanced that could float in the air with a propeller that make it move :P
could it be?

Here is vinciverse's YouTube video, on which he wrote: "My name is Raul Oaida (from Romania) and this is my LEGO tribute to the end of the space shuttle era. Proving that although retired, this machine can still fly, albeit in toy form.
The launch took place from central Germany (easy flight clearance) and reached a max altitude of 35000m. A 1600g meteo balloon filled with helium was used alongside a GoPro Hero, Spot GPS and of course Lego Space Shuttle model 3367.
We launched it on the 31st of December 2011, the equipment was recovered via GPS tracking 240 km S-E from a remote area.
I wish to thank Steve Sammartino for the opportunity to do this project and the german airtraffic control for the understanding.
