BOMBS AWAY!!! After watching the FliteTest battleship episode, I thought the RC community could use a better easy bomb drop, so this is what I came up with. Using only one servo and basic tools, this print quickly and easily snaps together to allow you to drop up to eight bombs sequentially.
This is an easy print, but will require some knowledge of RC transmitter/channel setup to get working correctly. Please feel free to ask questions, but make sure you watch the build video to get everything setup correctly.
What you need (beside the printed parts):
1x 9g servo
1x linkage stopper (or small screws/nuts)
servo tester (optional)
I love sharing my designs with you, so if you print this model, please consider tipping me. Someday I might be able to take flight lessons... :) Thank you!
If anyone is interested in purchasing this fully assembled, please contact me.

any ABS, PETG, PLA+
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:
The release arms and plates should be printed in ABS for smoothness and to withstand the elements.
The cover should be printed in PETG to withstand exposure to the sun. I had issues with this warping when printed in ABS. PLA will work well, but may melt in a hot car or on a hot day.
- The bombs can be printed in PLA as they are disposable. I've never had one melt when left outside for long periods, but they may melt in a hot car.
