Bomb Drop Challenge, ME

This episode and a guy named dumb_thumbs on RC Groups inspired me to do my own bomb drop-
Cost less than $3.00. Here's some vid of one of the first drops. I have since bought some of the little nerf footballs and have had a blast dropping them on top of people at our local field! I'll have to make some flour filled easter eggs and give that a shot too :)

Hey Guys

Well this is my second attempt at creating a bomb drop module for my super cub.

Its a compilation of take off's, bomb drops and landings. (watch to the end for a sweet greased in landing)

Hope you enjoy!

After seeing this episode, I had to add a servo for a bomb dropper. Too bad I don't have people people to fly with. :(
ikr!! It can get so boring when you´re flying on your own! I sometimes hate my little brother but that is still better to go fly with him then with nobody.

@cloaked: nice Video! I like the mechanism. Might add that to my Event, if I can put it on the plane without having to glue much.

I am thinking about making a fly itself kinda plane which flies off my PC. If I do ever succeed (I am working with a bunch of ppl who made a wired underwater vehicle robot which is controlled by a PC joystick from teh PC). however, adding bombs to it which are auto instead of the plane would be easier...and more awesome!

Couple of those HK B-grade lipos and i'm gud to go!

yes it is!

Most of the times you also need a recognition system to measure the exact position of the plane using either GPS or a camera system inside a room (mostly used for multicopters in university investigations and experiments though)
