If you release a set of balloons, you will likely do so over a set area and slightly different times. Each balloon will have slightly different buoyancy. They will go up (or at an angle with a slight wind near the ground) until they hit a layer of air, sizable compared to the balloon size, moving in relation to the ground. Any upward or lateral velocity of the balloon at that point will be overwhelmed and likely not noticeable because of the higher rate of speed of the wind. This layer may be with fairly low turbulence althought the transistion layer is likely turbulent. Once in the fairly uniform layer, all balloons will seem to be travelling at roughly the same lateral speed. They will keep roughly the same distance between them. Obviously if they were travelling in a turbulent wind layer, then they would be moving with respect to one another in such a way as to make their balloonness clear. So it seems to me that you don't even NEED strings to connect the balloons. All you need is a nice mostly laminar layer of air. What we don't know is how many days balloons were released and filmed but the wind layer was all wrong. How many tries before these "good" UFO fleet videos appeared? >"These objects don't have the characteristics of balloons >neither the condition.

To rephrase, a low level turbulent atmosphere is where the balloons are released and thus they will behave in a random appearing manner, although they do go upward. Once at a sufficient altitude to enter a more laminar or continuous flow (accepting transitional turbulence) region, random motions are overwhelmed by lateral velocity/force caused by the wind layer. Separation distance would only be a function of release time, separation between releasors, balloon individual buoyancy and aerodynamics.
