You can bulk in 200 unit lots for about $0.60 each.
Best of luck!
Whoa.. hey.. yes. Very nice. I was unaware of this!
If we cannot got the string of balloons route, we could possibly just do a huge cluster of like 32 of them and use like an 8 channel sequencer that I have here instead. That may actually be the way to go..
I gotcha Bob and I respect that. We're actually planning on doing this as a landmark to our camp which should be around 3 & G.. so we'll be back in the burbs. Not sure what the eventual height will reach but somewhere around 60' or so hopefully depending on wind conditions. What would be fun is to have enough base line so that it could be raised higher and higher with conditions permitting..Bob wrote:A few thoughts from skimming the thread --
It will "kite", even on a short line, so operate in a lateral space you can control. Things will break. Needs an operator, not a hippie. Respect BRC and its airport's airspace.
