OT: anyone worked with helium and blimps before?

basic knowledge would be of serious help. how much helium lifts how many ounces etc etc. or how much vertical thrust you need to lift 1 lb off the ground. shit like that.

basically i need to figure out a way to get 120 grams (.25 lbs) off the ground and flying around. It seems like you can buy some pretty awesome flying blimp toys for around 50$. like this one for example.

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="

&hl=en"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="

&hl=en" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

This toy also has an optional accessory for flight above 4000 foot elevation. it is a larger balloon (2 cubic feet) which should make the blimp float too high in regular elevation. i need to figure out how much lift i would get from an extra 2 cubic feet. enough to lift 120 grams?

if thats not enough i guess i could add other balloons? maybe wrap a couple long clown style balloons around the outside?

the whole point of this is that we have a sweet camera that transmits high quality live footage over a 3g or wifi connection to our tv show. it would be fucking awesome if we could have aerial cameras for tradeshows, and concerts and other large events.

help me make this happen!
