My Totex – Kaymont 1500g balloon has arrived, so its getting closer to having the critical parts needed for launch.

I decided upon the Totex balloon after reading reports of other balloon launches having success with them but also because there are limited sources for weather style balloons down under. The 1500g should be suitable for my payload which is already at 1.2 Kg’s and hopefully reach a good altitude.

You can get similar balloons via  Amazon 30ft dia. Professional Weather Balloon, 1200g but I purchased from Kaymont via Ebay

High Altitude Science Filling System

I’m still looking into a filling attachment for the balloon and have seen systems available from High Altitude Science but may try and make my own or find a local option.
