    <br>
    Usually you do not want to store for more that two years.&nbsp; The
    extras can be used next year.&nbsp; I have 5 that I bought at work 5
    years ago and have not used. &nbsp; 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.<br>

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