So anyone try to carry anything anything other than a camera on the AP plane? I have 7 pingpong ball tube for bombing and a setup to drop a skydiver w/ parachute each just velcroed on when needed. Now I was thinking of some bigger payloads like water balloons or perhaps a water payload that can just be dumped from the air. One of the smaller super soakers might be the easy way to go with a servo in the trigger so what do you think?
In the pics below "PIGS DO FLY" but not very well. :p

I hauled up an altioids tin stuffed with nicads for the maden. But I think everyone's done that. I like the ping pong shooter idea. Care to post a picture of it? I'd build one of those. It's good to get creative. You've got me thinking now.

Thanks
Don

Sorry I dont have a pics because the cat wanted the pingpong balls inside it and destroyed it getting at them. :(
Its just the cardboard tube from some paper towels with a servo to control the release. For lots more info have a look http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=445485&highlight=pingpong
