I want to build extreme cheap high altitude stuff - balloon, paper plane :) anything. Its cold outside now, and i dont want to track, and collect the my landed "spacecraft". So, i need a very cheap solution to track, at least the altitude of it.

What solution you advice? Thanks.

  • $\begingroup$ Balloon can be a part of a cheap spacecraft. the first step is to go near space. dont be pessimistic, the future is ours! $\endgroup$ – Norbert Dec 18 '18 at 18:57
