    I am trying to figure out how to make what I believe is called a "servo" which I envision as being a clamp type device that I can have carry small items and drop them when I hit a button on my remote. I have a Phantom 3 and the main reason I want this is to use my drone to carry a fishing lure and when I spot fish it will drop the lure over the fish. Might sound crazy but I think it would be a cool feature to have. Has anyone had experience with building such a thing with the Stock Phantom 3 with stock controller? Thanks for any help on this.
