BMP RC Pilot Torso
BMP Pilot is a 1:5 scale RC Hang Glider and RC Paraglider Pilot, additionally used for a variety of RC and static model projects, in scale planes, cars, tucks, and boats.
BMP Pilot is compatible with a variety of 2-3 meter, 1:5 scale Hang Glider wings including the 1:5 scale RCT SlipStream-6 Hang Glider Wing, and the BMP 2.5 Sport Paraglider wing. The BMP RC Hang Glider pilot controls a hang glider movement in flight by weight-shift.
The two standard size servos (sold separately) installed in the upper portion of the Torso help BMP Pilot’s articulated arms shift the pilot’s weight when controlling an RC Hang Glider, or control riser/break lines when controlling an RC Paraglider/Paramotor. Standard size plastic or metal-geared Futaba servos may be used depending on set up, i.e., overall weight, size of wing/airfoil, motor size, etc.). A 9G micro servo and ball link maybe added to control head/neck movement.
BMP pilot’s arm is offered in two configurations, 1) Two Piece Hang Glider Arm (HG/default), 2) One Piece Paraglider Arm. The HG arm is made of two sections, upper and lower, intended for controlling the attitude and angle of the pilot’s body when attached to an RC Hang Glider control bar. The optional one piece arm allows control of Paraglider airfoil break lines. Both Hang Glider and Paraglider pilot arms are designed to directly mount onto standard Futaba servo or servo horns.
Create your pilot by adding individual components or purchase prebundled kits, clothing and harness not included. BMP Pilot's body components are made of biodegradable hard or soft plastic material, designed for optimum performance, durability, and value. Inherent esthetic imperfections associated with printed PLA parts maybe improved and refinished as desired. BMP Pilot's Jumpsuit and Pilot Harness are sold separately, offered subject to availability. The BMP pilot may be used with 2S-3S 1300-2200mAh Lipo battery and compact 2.4Ghz receiver.
