I would get three and fly them in the "L" - shaped arrangement that we have used for years with the Geiger counters in our program. Then you will get horizontal and vertical coincidences and can easily locate the Pfotzer maximum.

I recieved two of these a couple months ago for a test. They worked well on my ground tests and I'm planning to launch them on my next balloon flight.
I have two so I can run them in coincidence mode. Only when a muon passes through both detectors, will it register as a detection. That will limit the BalloonSat to only detecting muons originating overhead.
