Clevis pin servo for payload drop??

Is there such a thing on the market that would hold a plastic type clevis pin that would be attached to the payload which when triggered would simply release the pin from within the servo... I know that this can be done by making a release atachment with a regular rotating servo butt to have a pin be released would be more efficient. Any help, suggestions, links or ideas would be great. I should clarify this would be mounted underneath a quadcopter etc.

Not quite sure what you are looking for, but try the following -

Go back to the Flight Accessories forum main page,
On the right hand side is the Search this Forum, click on it,
Type drop,
Set it to Show Threads,
Click Go.

You should get a list of threads with the word 'drop' in their titles. Instead of clicking on a title, click on the tiny paperclip symbol at the end of the title. It will show just the pictures.
If you see anything useful, open the thread for more details.

Hope that helps.

P.S., probably the easiest method is to hold something in place with a rubber band wrapped around it, and have the servo arm release one end.

To clarify, it would be a bag full of plastic easter eggs that once attached to the quadcopter it could be released easily sending the now open contents to fall to the ground so all my nephews and nieces can run and grab the plastic easter eggs... we usually hide them on our property but this would be more fun.
