Fun idea. I might rig one up for one of my machines.
Be fun to do target practice dropping watermelons or pumpkins, could have competitions.

I do have some experience with sling loads and things didn't go well.
The load I was lifting for a local school's experiment was a very light weight antenna.
The lead we used was to short and the rotor wash had the load swinging enough that the line got into the tail rotor. As you can imagine the results weren't pretty.

Still I'd try things again having learned something from the experience. Keep lead long and the lighter the load to further down the line the better.
