Axial motion of a balloon payload with respect to the center of mass under action of ventilator engines is studied. An implementation of a control algorithm is suggested. The possibility of using ventilator engines for trajectory tracking is examined. A technique for determining engine parameters and results of laboratory tests of a system mock-up are presented.
