On this page, we provide you with some useful information on how to launch a balloon yourself.
Land distribution in Germany
Here we show you the land distribution for Germany. As you can see, the risk of landing in a city or on water is very low. Up until now and without exception, all of our flights landed in fields, meadows or in woods.
Ideal length of special cords
The ideal length of the special cords between the weather balloon and the parachute is 5 meters and 10 meters between the parachute and the polystyrene probe. These lengths increase the probability of easy recovery if the probe should land in a tree. We do not recommend using longer cords since this can have an effect on the flight stability.
