Seeking ideas of fun things to drop on people from RC planes

I was talking to my brother and his club has an egg drop. The tape a cup onto the wing of their planes (they all fly 3D planes so no drop boxes) and put an egg in it. Then the fly it over the field and dip the wing over the target to drop the egg. They also have to be very careful on the way there not to drop the egg on take off etc. Sounds like a fun challenge.

Other than the weight, I think a shopping cart would make a perfectly reasonable aircraft. And, with that fold up back, its pretty much like a C-130. Imaging the cargo you could drop!

Warning. Dropping stuff from airplanes is addicting. Once you get started you tell yourself you can stop anytime and that it's not something that you need to...

Ok, so here's what I'm taking to school with me tomorrow:
For wings-24 Nerf darts, flour bombs (flour wrapped in tissue)
For tube - glitter, flour, bread crumbs, macaroni pasta, shredded cheese.

I'm still digging through the pantry for ideas. I'm going to get a bunch of saw dust from the wood shop, too.

I'm am already cracking up! Poor bastard. Coaching is going to be a b*tch tomorrow!

Hahahaha- the tube with flour in it could be fun!
One of my friends here makes flour bombs out of soda bottles, he cracked one on takeoff and it looked like the big electric was doing a smoke trail!

Rice could be fun in the tube too!

You gotta get some video!

Oh, yeah! Rice is a great idea!

The Cub will have a camera mounted on it. Also, I am going to borrow the school's HD video recorder. We also have coverage by the yearbook staff. It should be well documented. I'll edit and post up tomorrow!

It's RC law. If there's more than one plane available, whenever one goes down or into a tree, all the rest must do circles around the scene and point and laugh.

I'll clear the trees for ya, Ninja!
Hahahahaha- You could have cleared this one with one of those Buck knives you Pennsylvanian's seem so fond of ;)

If there aren't trees we seem to find cars, sprinklers or other planes.

First rule of or club (almost the only one) is if you are gonna crash get it on video!

I have made a lot of videos on my Bomb bay door on my super cub, I have dropped eggs,flour bombs, metal cars, the best one is those Easter eggs that you do for scavenger hunts, crack them open, fill them with flour, drop them and they can create a mess and still not hurt any one. I have a video on them
