    Modifying a 1/6 scale figure for RC?

    I know someone has done this before, but can anybody share their experience / techniques / pics with me on modifying an action figure into an RC Skydiver. I'll purchase the chute seperately, I just want to know about modifying the body.
    Thanks,
    Joe

    RE: Modifying a 1/6 scale figure for RC?

    Take note from the Micro Jumper you bought from us and go from there. That is a fairly simple design that works very well. I know it will work with a GI Joe because I have a prototype that is that very same design.

    RE: Modifying a 1/6 scale figure for RC?

    Thanks Dave, I was thinking along the same lines. I have a couple figures coming and will be doing some cutting on them trying to give them shoulder replacement surgery using servos as shoulders. (Don't tell the collectors that I bought these from
    Was wondering which servos would work - oz. inches of power, size, etc... and also which chute to go with. I think you were recommending your 49" chute for this; is there any difference besides size with the Hangtime chute?

    Go with the Hitec HS-225MG servos. These are just about the right size to fit in him good and they have plenty of torque.

    Yes the chutes are very similar, just the hangtime is much bigger. Definately go with the 49" chute, this is the right sive for the weight you will be when you end up.

    Well of course RCSkydiving!!!! all kidding aside, he got his chute from us, but his masterpiece of a skydiver is his artwork.
