Do you ever use the rudder function? If not there is your switch.

Yes, that is the "master " switch for me and what I plan. I am trying to rig 2 more functions. Actually I wanted 2 bombs to be released separately (one with flour and one with powdered charcoal) chas. More pics to come. ha! PS Wanted to make a video of my releases at the clothes line !!

. Neutral position both bombs are locked, left rudder releases one and right releases the other.

Another way to drop two is use a servo and a 3 way stitch(flaps).

Position1 both bombs locked
Position 2 servo moves 1/2 way between 2 U channels or 3 eyehooks and drops 1 bomb
Position 3 servo moves all the way over and drops the other as it retracts.

Why flap switch? You can position the wire so it stops by changing the % of flap down so it doesn't release the other. Total movement is controlled by changing holes in servo arm. Outer gives more total movement .
Make sure wire doesn't bind for if it does, the servo amperage goes up and possible battery voltage goes down quickly.
I like to design and fly unique planes.

I somewhat used your picture for design but allows 2 bombs and depending on your tx if you used the rudder channel full left releases one and full right releases the other and neutral they are locked in. If you have access to a 3D printer I can send you the file. For giggles I am printing it off to see if it will work.


Little bit of plywood and some cf tubing it should be easy enough to construct also. For the calculations I use a servo arm that is roughly 30mm in length to the outside holes, there should be about 10mm travel from neutral position to full left or right.

Ooops, just looked at the design, drops both at the same time, me bad. Thought to complicated, both guides off the same side will work and 1 single wire.

JUST EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR. YOU ARE AS SAVVY AS THEY COME. I KNEW WHAT I WANTED BUT LOW ON ACETYLCHOLINE AT THE SNAPTIC JUNCTIONS. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I AM IN THE PROCESS OF CONSTRUCTING IT RIGHT NOW. I WILL SEND A VIDEO WHEN I GET THIS WOMAN BACK UNDER THE CLOTHES LINE!! What a perfect solutions and so vividly displayed!! chas

Slow down, this is the one you want, that first one will release both at the same time, this will do I as stated.

This one you just need a single arm not like it is pictured and one linkage stop that's it. One single wire that goes straight through and it will be very close to the width of the stand. I would go with .031 or so gauge of wire to allow some flex.
