FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Q. What is the size and weight of your pilots?

 

We have listed dimensions and weights on each pilot page The most important considerations when choosing a pilot are seated height and shoulder width as many models have cockpits that are not proportional to the rest of the airframe.

 

Q. How long will it take to produce my pilot?

 

The majority of our pilots are hand made to order, this is a labour intensive process that can take several weeks to complete due to our workload. We would recommend that you order well in advance to avoid disappointment. If you have a deadline then please let us know so we can try to help.

 

Q. Do you make custom, one off heads or pilots?

 

Unfortunately we don't offer a bespoke head service but we can produce custom clothing and patches, though this option is dependent on our workload at the time of inquiry.

 

Q. Can you make a pilot that moves?

 

Yes we can! We currently offer an animatronic option in 1:7, 1:6, 1:5, 1:4 & 1:3.5 scales with 1:3 and 1:2.5/2.25 coming soon. There is a choice of head left/right, head up/down, right arm raise, left arm raise and even a rotating chest on certain scales (please note that 1:7 and 1:5 scale figures currently have limited functions). We can supply your moving figure as a pre-programmed Plug 'n' Play pilot that you simply add power too, alternatively you can simply have the movements controlled by your own radio gear via y leads, the choice is yours. We've been involved in animatronics for over 10 years, so we know a thing or two about moving figures, our conversions are robust and durable, more than can be said for others we have seen! :)

 

Q. I'm outside the EU so can you quote without VAT?

 

Our pilot business is separate to our aircraft company, as such the pilots are not eligible for tax. Sorry.
