    Looking for any guidance on an external payload controller to use the release mechanism like this one

    Quanum RTR Bomb System 1/6 scale Plug-n-Drop

    Obviously would be more elegant if could use the P3 controller, but are there any 5.8GHz, 900MHz solutions with a 9V battery to receive on aircraft and activate the servo remotely?

    Creativity and ideas are welcome!

    Contact RCDepotHobbies to see if they will sell you [just] the 'module' used to control their retracts using the OEM transmitter's Flight Mode (P.A.F.) switch.

    Take a look at this device. Actually, it's a remote power switch which can manage high loads (upto 190A peak)
    You may connect it to your battery (3S-6S) and switch power to any external load with a button on separate long range rc.
    Both rc and receiver can be powered with 9V.
    To move the servo you will need an adaptor which will convert DC to PWM.
