Alright, so you’ve got yourself a sweet remote controlled airplane. You spend hours just flying it around and having fun. In the back of your mind you know that this device has more potential, you could be doing so much more with it. Well that little voice in your head (no, not those voices) is right, you could be bombing things.
The Bombs Away kit is a small bomb that can be attached to any .25 size or larger R/C plane. The base connects to a spare servo channel, and can be triggered to drop the bomb with the simple push of a button. The bomb itself is a little over 9 inches long and 3 inches wide. It splits in half and can be filled with almost any solid substance down to a fine powder. Upon impact, it splits apart and releases its contents.
The bomb is constructed from a tough nylon so that it can survive countless drops. The kit even includes an extra release plate so that you can craft your own bomb and attach it. This $17 kit will add tons of fun to your existing R/C plane.
