    Hobby Zone Aerial Drop Module

    When I try to secure a bomb or parachute man to my aerial drop module, the magent doesn't seem to hold it very well. The metal part attached to the "bungee" cord seems to have a small nub on it so it won't attach nice and flat to the magnet. As soon as I launch the plane, it's released. Is this the way it's supposed to be or should I grind it off?
    Thanks,
    Craig

    RE: Hobby Zone Aerial Drop Module

    Can you show a photo of what you are talking about please? As I have two of them and they work great. On one I did have to make the cord tighter so it would not fall off before I hit the button to drop it.

    definitely grind that off: the "male" connection on the bungy must make contact with both the circle and the strip inside the recession of the module. When working properly you can hold huge payloads (see vid here)
