How do you go wrong with that?

Sure beats the $400,000/mo fee for the 2008 RP Blimp. Heck we could put 4,000 in the air for that price!

There has to be a RP2012 use for one of these.

There is a catch however... You have to buy helium. At $2/cf for those party balloon kits at walmart...

You might want to contact these people for a bulk rate:

Four thirds pi times the radius cubed:

14,137 cubic feet in the big boy 30 footer (though it might be wise not to fully inflate)

Amazon stocks 20' diameter and 8' diameter as well.

4188 cubic feet in a 20' diameter balloon
268 cubic feet in a 8' diameter balloon

HAVE FUN!
