Hey guys, I am wondering if anyone has designed or found a remote controlled release mechanism. I would like to carry items and release as will using a controller. Any suggestions? Currently I am using a down rigger with a release upon tension which works okay but this method does not allow me to release at will. Any ideas?

hello. I made a confetti dropper a while back.

I made what looks like a clamshell drigger bucket with a small spring added to give tension when the futaba servo was activated  

it was made from laminated cardboard and lolly pop sticks for rigidity

I'm looking for an electronic latch of some sort that can be remotely triggered to open or close. I would rig it so I can drop something. Looking for ideas or latches that would work.
