Wonder if you can go with a solar balloon to bypass the helium requirement entirely.

Edmund Scientific sells both weather balloons for use with helium and solar baloons.

The solar baloon site sells both kits and plans for solar baloons.

Depending on size, there seems to be more than enough payload and drive lift.
