Economical Bomb / Parachute Drop

Decided to make a cheap drop mechanism for my son's Hobby Zone Super Cub. Bought a $7, 8gram servo and stuck it in the tail of the plane. Then hooked a rubber band around the servo arm and two screws near the landing gear. We've dropped everything from Nerf bullets, to egg sized water balloons, and in the second attached video, Darth Vader from an Estes rocket parachute.
