What about low approaches? Like 2 or 3 meters off the ground and also not exactly full throttle.

Yeah, I was pretty sure it would work since u can see the plane and the ground at the same time and thus judge ur speed and position better. I suggest making a video of that.

Yes...I will see both at the same time. Right now I am up to 4 oz payload and I am going on up and up to see what I can get away with. I am beginning to notice a touchiness in the rocking and rolling on take off...gettting sloppier and sloppier with controls as the wt of the payload increases. Trying to see what I can get away with because I am thinking of switching to water ballons!!.....chas

I have other more complex mechanisms that I got from you guys in the forum on my other planes but I threw this one together in about 5 min to test wt, balance, etc. Works fine for one bomb!! chasBomb release Mechanism..Utrasimple 004.JPG  Bomb release Mechanism..Utrasimple 006.JPG  Bomb release Mechanism..Utrasimple 007.JPG
