What is it made out of? Flogos are synthesized from proprietary surfactant (soap) based foam formulations and lighter-than-air gases such as helium.
line
How long do they last? Flogos are designed to last for as long as their visual impact is needed. Specific formulations are available to provide a life expectancy of a few minutes to an hour or so. The visual impact also greatly depends on atmospheric conditions such as wind and relative humidity. On average, Flogos last for 30 to 40 minutes.
line
Will they travel over my target? Our certified Flogo technician will place the Flogo machine in the optimum location. Flogos travel with the direction of the current wind flow, and the winds can change at higher altitudes. Flogos, however, are highly visible as they take flight to hundreds, even thousands, of feet and then travel for miles before evaporating.
line
How far and high can they travel? Flogos can travel from 1 to 30 miles and float as high as 5000 feet. They fly slowly, so they are visible for a long period of time.
line
How complex of a logo can be made? Our designers use Flogo software to develop and test custom shapes. The Flogo machines are available in 36 inch versions.
line
How long will it take to develop our Flogo? Our in house Flogo art department will develop your Flogo stencil usually within the same day your order is placed.
line
Are they environmentally safe? Flogos are Green and 100% environmentally safe (please reference our MSDS information in the Downloads section of the web site).
line
Can you colour them? Flogos currently come in white, but we have been successively testing colour Flogos. For an additional charge, we can produce Flogos in a limited number of colours.
line
How many Flogos per minute can be produced? With each Flogo machine, on average, one Flogo will be produced every 15 to 20 seconds, depending on the  desired thickness. We recommend at least two machines for events, so Flogos will fly approximately every 7 to 25 seconds, again, depending on the machine size and desired thickness.
line
What sizes are the Flogos? Currently, available size is36 inch . Because of the negative space sometimes required to successfully fly the Flogo (to hold it together), its final shape may be smaller in some cases. However, Flogos are also dimensional (thick). In the near future,we will have a custom 72 inch Flogo machine available.
line
Are Flogos CAA approved? Due to the fact that Flogos have no mass and are made out of 99% water and air, they do not fall under the jurisdiction of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). It is a standard Flogo policy, however, that if a Flogo event is taking place within 5 miles of an airport, we notify the tower that we will be flying Flogos nearby.
line
Can I buy a Flogo Machine? Flogo machines are only available through our authorized Flogo dealers. Flogo machines are rented in blocks of time and are operated by a certified Flogo operator.
line
Who are your Flogos clients? We have performed hundreds of Flogo events for clients such as Nintendo, Walt Disney World, the Sheraton, the Tampa Bay Rays, and the list goes on. We have done events such as parades, festivals, grand openings, concerts, and sporting events. The sky is not the limit anymore!
line
How do you transport the Flogo machines? Due to the size and weight of the machines, they are transported by trailer. Each machine rolls on large air tires for easy movement.
line
What are the electrical requirements? Each Flogo machine requires a minimum of one 20 amp circuit. Every Flogo trailer is equipped with generator power for remote Flogo events.
line
Can Flogo events be performed inside? Yes, Flogos can be used inside with very entertaining results. Generally, the higher the ceiling, the better the effect.
line
How long does it take to set up a Flogo event? Flogo machines have been designed for the event industry so they are built into functional road cases. Set up and break down are both less than 30 minutes when performed by trained Flogo technicians.
line
Is it possible to change the Flogo stencil in one machine? Yes, stencils can be changed out as many times as the client requests. We have performed events with multiple sponsors where several different custom Flogos have been flown concurrently. At these events, the stencils were typically switched out every 15 minutes, but we will accommodate your particular need. We also have several standard shapes available for your event along with your custom Flogo(s).
line
Where can I see a demo? We offer an open invitation to our corporate office in Bournemouth, Dorset Also, you may call us to see if we are performing any events in your area.
