For a 1000 feet test we would need somewhere around $280, excluding shipping and taxes. our next 10,000 feet test would require another $280 for certain required parts at that altitude, and the full 100,000 launch on August 21st would require something around $500-$600 more due to transportation, an increased need for helium, and additional parts for redundancy and safety.

We have a full budget list that we’re always updating here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1UmKkls4CvanxiO43g4-KIkz0GSXZ8OzX3XShayTFao4/edit?usp=sharing
