How does a hobby weather balloon control its flight path? Just it just keep rising straight up vertically, always at the mercy of the winds, being swayed side to side?
Unlike a rocket/drone, it does not have an engine/motor that can be controlled remotely. So if I want the balloon to hover over a particular area and send me images (a particular section of a forest to watch for wildlife activity), how do I do it?
All weather balloons seem to be aimed towards gaining altitude and taking NASA like images, but is there a way to move a balloon horizontally and not just vertically
