Hi folks, has anyone fitted a remote release mechanism?
Do you mean to drop something?
Yes, I am making a promo video and would
Like to release a small parachute with a box of sweets
Google that and you'll find all sorts of stuff. Be careful of FAA rules.
I can see in the future where homeland security/govn't will ban drones/uas for this reason......
Thanks, ive had a look I was wandering if anyone here has done it? I have a full CAA licence and permits in the UK and will be operating strictly within them
Not at all, I have a full commercial license and the operation is controlled and planned in line with the CAA and permit for aerial work. It's idiots flying above 400ft with no qualifications or licence that will do the damage.
I agree 100%...and that would be the excuse for it..
They do cover this in the rules and I think it is ok as long as you are sure it cannot hit anyone or anything.
Just unscrew the horizontal section of the legs leaving the vertical sections only. Then lower the gear and anything will slide off. - prop the body up with some blocks to take off, and hand catch to land.
If you want to get fancy, find a way to install an RC glider tow release latch. You would likely need to also use a separate transmitter and receiver, with a small flight battery to provide the control function but it would be a reliable set up. A cheap 2 channel radio would easily handle it.
Good luck to ruin the reputation for us prof. drone operators.
assuming he is doing this in a legal way...we dont even know what country he is in.
Both the U.K. and U. S. aviation agencies permit the dropping of objects from aircraft under controlled conditions. Destructive devices are not permitted.
