Whats the capacity/volume of the balloon and how long can i use it to monitor the farm if i use it once a week? I need the tentative time where i need to refill the cylinder as i want to provide these services to remote farm area?

I look forward to hear from you amazing people.

Thank you

Hi, it depends on how big your balloon is and what it's made of. If you use a rubber balloon, it'll deflate over a day or two. If you use mylar, like in the Mini Balloon Kit, you can keep it inflated for a few weeks, so I think that may be a good answer for you. Have you considered using kites, too?

I apologize for my late response. I went through mini balloon mapping kit. Lets consider the 36 inch mylar balloons, approx many would a 15 L helium tank lasts if i fill it once a week for taking images? I haven't considered using kite so far.
