JP Aerospace’s unmanned Tandem airship — built using $30,000 over 5-years — set a new altitude record by flying 95,085-feet above the Earth. According to JP Aerospace, “this altitude is a full four miles higher than any other airship has ever flown.” Video after the break.

To pull this off, the team strapped its 30-foot-long aircraft with two balloons, and packed it with a pair of electric motors that manipulated the Tandem’s specially designed propellers.
