After the loss of the Yavin IV project, Bespin was born. Its goal, to succeed where Yavin IV failed. Smaller and lighter combined with more precise tracking/recovery methods, Bespin aims higher than before.
More to come soon.

How much helium did you use for the balloon?
I from Argentina and we want to launch a ballon and take picture here.
I will buy weather balloon from amazon (600gr) but we don’t know how much helium we need to inflate it.
The trick for helium is to weight your payload, then fill a water jug to approximately 2 lbs more than what your payload weighs. Then connect the jug to a string and I hang it off the end of the hose you use to fill the balloon. Once your balloon is lifting the jug off the ground, you know you have enough helium.
Hope that helps.

Bespin is the successor to the fallen Yavin IV project run by Sevnthsin.
The goal of Bespin is to operate lighter and more precisely than Yavin IV, while capturing even more stunning imagery of the earth from 100,000+ feet up.
