Here’s one from one of our guys in Pennsylvania, that is about to complete its 4th revolution.

Thanks Gary!

I was just curious. I am using the same balloons and have one that's been up for a month and a half.  I know some are using the Yokohama balloons but I found the ORBZ 32" to be better for me. 

Glad to hear things went well for the launch today.

Thanks, 
Tony W3UAV
