I would not buy more than 6 this year unless we plan to fly many more flights. and I personal will not be able to fit more that three per year in my schedule.

>>>  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.
