Hi Thunderbird, do you fabricate this yourself? Wow the P4 is rock solid when ascending with the cargo dangling there, and no movement at the time of cargo release. This is awesome!

So no yoyo effect at all? How's the altitude reading on your screen? All normal?

Awesome! And how do you command the release mode? Through the app or button on RC? You should teach me how to make one though

This will be helpful in SAR situations! Best wishes.

I use my payload system on my inspire 1 to drop gasoline filled balloons on an open fire so I can watch the big orange mushroom cloud. Is that practical enough for you?

It seems that ignorance travels at the speed of light (aimed at those bringing politics into this discussion). If you don't like his post about having the ability to drop a payload then move along.

I can see good uses and bad uses.
Just like the aircraft, people can use them for good or bad.
And since it's mounted on the back and not underneath, there would be no altitude variation due to the sonar has a unobstructed view.

Here is a release servo adapter I will mount this in the rear of p4 not  like the claw for the inspire ,the landing gear will raise and retract the claw very cool someone is selling the claw for $99.00
You can make the claw one easier for inspire than p4
I will use p4 for a fishing line oh almost forget I have to drop the blood bait also
Only over salt water for me

Sorry I apologize I did not understand your statement "you mad in 3d prints? "no worries all good !
check out you tube the" stork payload release" now if you also fly inspire this is really something you can make yourself brilliant idea I like it ,now for the P4 that will be a separate RC 2.4 G  with a servo to release a fishing line.
Of course safety is always first when I catch my meal and  I will always give thanks before I consume my Fish and chips
lol
happy flights
