Default Cargo door mechanism (How To)

Can anyone give me more info on a cargo door mechanism, to drop some flour bombs or water bombs? I do want a internal bay, and not a external "carridge"
Thanks

Do you want one that just opens or are you wanting something more scale that opens and then closes back like a cargo bay door on a real plane?

If you want one that just opens you can use a setup with a standard or micro servo and save a little bit over the price of a retract servo.

I remember seeing a post not to long ago on this. I think Minnflyer had a few really good illustrations of bombay setups.
