Default Ground Test

For the curious, if your wondering about the placement or position of the cargo pin in relation to the mast or main shaft, the slot and connection point to the load is directly below the mast center line so no odd CG shift will occur from the suspended load other than that caused by the swinging of the load.

For testing the operation of the hook assembly I have decided to use a bucket, connected as described above and continuously add sand to find the max weight limit for the servos ability to pull the pin and see what power requirement the servo has in doing so...wouldn't want to get in flight, hit the cargo release with a heavy load only to have the FBL go into reset.
That would be a bummer.
