Home made rigid airship
I'm new here but I would like to ask you few things. I'm making 6-meter long, 1.1 meter diameter rigid airship. I have already made construction and today my mylar sheets have arrived. What brings me to this question. Few years ago I made two balloons using thin garbage bags sealed together. Since I don't want to pay for helium, I make hydrogen from NaOH+H2O+Al reaction. Obviously, hydrogen leaked through envelope but I had 1 or 2 hours with enough lift to send a camera up there. I'm doing exact same thing except this one will be radio controlled.
So this is question. Will I get at least some more time with cheap emergency blanket mylar? I just need 2 or 3 hours and that's it?
And, for radio control I'm using FM 80MHz and FM 81MHz home made transmitters with theoretical range of 1000 meters.

comparison between plastic films.
hard on the neck to read - low is good
