Start by having a look at the threads in the 'Similar Threads' list, (bottom of this page).

What sort of model are you considering ?, door(s) in the bottom, (bomber style), at the rear, (cargo type doors), or in the side, (skydiver style).

Some people even just strap a skydiver to the bottom of the fuselage and use a release, bombs etc, can be underwing.

I have seen the links below and did some search.

I need a Drop from below door that can handle up to two pounds for any junk I want to toss out of it.

Here's a couple of pictures of the 'toffee dropping' add-on mechanism for the ST Discovery trainer (Hobbico Sensei). The wire is attached to a small servo that opens/closes the doors. Not very high-tech, but I'm sure you get the idea.
