Do you have any full-body pilots?

No. So far, I (nor any other manufacturer for the RC market) have not found a way to make a figure light enough to fly, strong enough to last, cheap enough to make a profit (scale rc business has very small customer base). I am continuing to work to to produce a full-body figure just as  Einstein spent his life in pursuit of the unified field theory.

Who is Aces of Iron Productions?

Aces of Iron Productions is owned by me, Michael Johnson. I used to fly (before all my free time was consumed with this business) at the Sepulveda Basin. I have a full-time job as an aerospace engineer. Spike was my first design, I made him to fit my Balsa USA Eindecker .40.  The interrest he generated at the field prompted me to create other designs.  As I am an engineer by trade, my early sculptures were pretty rough. The designs improve as my sculpting ability progresses.
