Hi All,


Just a quick video showing the Maja launcher & bottle drop mechanism in action ahead of Deliverable 2.

The old bottle drop mechanism was fairly dodgy so I have re-vamped it.

This is tricker than it looks as the water bottle weighs greater than 500g which is a significant part of the aircrafts weight and mounting such a mass directly over the center of gravity difficult.

I wanted the simplest mechanism possible to hopefully avoid breakdowns so I went for a single lock-pin design see pictures below.
