The Pilot Head is simply a cover for a small camera such as an 808 #16 popular keychain camera or similar size FPV camera. The molded head can be perforated to provide a front opening for the camera lens. This assembly can then be mounted with double sided foam tape or Velcro to the flat side of a servo installed to a compact pan-tilt camera support, fitted on a servo mounting pocket on neck of the pilot torso.
The NEW instrument Panel is a full mold (not just a flat curved cover as in earlier options). It is designed to be used with an optional or user supplied floating compass and Low Battery Voltage Alarm indicator, as in the photos below, also in our recent videos,  or you can mount your own visual electronics to the dashboard, in anyway you like. The front of the instrument panel  has a raised pocket  with a small perforation to house a small buzzer for battery low voltage alarm indication.

NEW!!! MIA 1.25 Articulated Pilot Figure with Animatronic Head
By customer requests.
We have added yet another option to take the Fun! of RC Ultralight Flying to a higher level!

This is MIA's Famous Pilot Figure that pilots all of our Ultralight models, beginning with the MIA EZ Trikes 1.25. as well as the MIA Quicksilver Style Ultralights and even MIA 1.25-1.5 size RC Autogyros and RC Helicopters.  The size is a bit larger than a GI-Joe figure, which makes it more visible,  but at a fraction of the weight and suitable for RC Ultralight models and customers who wish to have a more realistic and ultra lightweight articulated pilot figure on their model.

This Pilot Figure comes with a servo operated head ready to use.  An optional servo delay circuit and mixer can be also used to make the head move more slowly in proportion to the aileron, elevator or rudder control.

A sample video with the pilot mounted on our MIA EZ Trike 1.25, the figure hand grips can be positioned to a regular stick control mounted on side of the Ultralight seat or center to mimic real hand to stick control.

MIA "Pusher" Rear Seat Motor Mounting KIT
as in MIA Original 2011 RC UL Conversion Kit for the GWS or HK Slow Stick
NOTE: We have added this setup back, also per requests of customers who wish to keep the front end of the model totally unobstructed for FPV flying.
With this setup you need to remove the extension of the Slow Stick boom  to make up for correct CG displacement due to weight of motor at the rear of the trike instead of at the front of the boom, as a typical Slow Stick setup.  The PRO to this  is a totally unobstructed front view for FPV. The CON to this is Rear Motor Mount is limited in height and you may need to go with smaller diameter prop and higher KV Motor than originally on your model.

If you prefer a Quicksilver style RC Microlight "FULL" Aluminum Frame Kit go with the following setup.

A true Quicksilver like UL in scale. Comes with Trike LG,  MIA Phantom Carbon Pattern seat and front panel, Battery Plate and Servo Brackets like on MIA Conversion UL kits for the Slow Sticks but has additional tubes, brackets, Carbon Rods and Hardware to make up the more realistic Quicksilver like structure. The motor is shown for reference and does not come with the Frame Kit.

A Converted Slow Stick UL can Hold a GI-Joe figure for more realism and fun.
This setup does not use FPV gear as this would add considerable weight to the model and it is only
recommended and shown here for fun flights.
Typical Power: 850 to 1000 KV motor with a 9x6 prop and 3S 2400 mAH Li-pol Battery is a good start.
