An articulated wooden man commonly used as a tuition tool by FS coaches and during ground training sessions, such as AFF and Static Line.
This training aid can form all the required body positions for FS and for FF flying styles, and make some of the most easily understandable training aids for novices and students.
Sizes; (Sizes are approximate, as each unit has small variances) - Height includes base platform
Small (Small model only: Elbows and Knee joints have restricted movement as they are not fully articulated.)
Each model is supported by a metal pole into a wooden base - they are not threaded and can be removed with a little effort. To convert the model to a permanent skydiving belly position remove the support and drill a similar size hole in the central body.
Fully articulated body including rotation of joints in addition to standard movement. (Note - over rotating a joint in the same direction will eventually break the spring - always rotate it back again in order to maximise working life)
