Any info about the water bomb mechanism?

Waterbomb mechanism


It is very simple and reliable. I use a plastic fish packing, a water balloon and a servo- driven wire to burst it. It is fixed under the airplane with velcro tape. The only modification to the airframe is a hole for the servo lead.

To use a water balloon and a servo to pop it is so cool.

After the maiden flight of my Honk, and my pilot being blow out, before the plane even left the ground, I decided that he needed a little more safety equipment. I added a windshield and a roll bar to give him a more security.

Just another question about “extras” of the Honk: can you post some info about the fake water bomb system? (Powder or dust bombing on the first post)

Hi cbalgra,

I like your pilot very much.
Where can I get it from?

It's the same fish packing, as for the water bombing, but no holes in the cover, a tape hinge on one side and a servo released rubber band on the other side
The powder is flour.
