I love your weekend projects. After I saw your ballon launch I had to try it. So last week I launched a hellium ballon with a video camera, a still camera, gps and a ham radio and guess what? It worked! Balloon got to 28km +/-. It traveled about 100km east from the launch site (100 km south east of Montréal, Canada)
