    My roof is super steep and high so I was thinking is there a way to hook something on there to fly above and release moss kill granules? I know they make drop systems but not sure how they would work for what I need..any ideas?

    Maybe something that attaches to the rear of your gimbal and when you look down it releases it, i seen one on Youtube a while ago but forget the way it was done

    I'll need the camera to see where to drop it so I would need another way of dropping it

    When it tilts back up release then, sounds like an easy LOS flight you can fly with the cam facing downward?

    why would you want to put any weight on the gimbal? These things have enough problems without adding to it.

    Or you could buy one of these cheap quads, and then remove the water canon and find a way to mount it down low on the legs, and use the cheap transmitter to disperse some liquid moss killer.;)

    Simple can be best. Maybe four equal lengths of cord attached to hang from between the skids and at the centre of gravity at one end with the individual opposite ends tied to the corners of a peice of square plastic, You can then load with pellets like a reverse parachute and to deploy simply descend to the all fall out when contacting the roof.
