Instructable's author masynmachien shows you how to build a miniature spy blimp using a balloon and some hacked servos.

Building tiny RC blimps has become very accessible with the ultra micro RC-gear available today at affordable prices. Plantraco's awesome Nanoblimp, a RTF featherweight dog fighting champion, illustrates that. It is just new on the market and if I see it right it must be under 6g, allowing for the use of a 9" balloon. It follows the line set with Plantraco's earlier Microblimp, with its gondola at 10-12g. The Ballooncraft micro blimp on the other hand has been on the market for quite a while, but using a 17" balloon (putting it near 30g without payload), that's has become a heavyweight in the Microblimp League.
