I still say that 600gm are sufficient for what we are doing 2.5 - 3
lb payload remember we need about $50 to $75 of helium to fill it.
Big balloons need more gas and are only need if we want a gbigger
payload. the big ones make sense when we put up a repeater or several
radios . Two trackers should be less that 1 lb.
Thats my two cents, I will work with what ever we end up with.
