I need to put someone who can fly in the cabin of my Cub. Who makes a good pilot figure in 1/5 scale that won't cost me more than the plane? Pics are always appreciated.

Williams Brothers makes a 1/5 scale Sportsman pilot, available from Tower #WBRQ2485. Price about 5 bucks. Check Tower website for pics.

Thanks- all good recommendations. I want a full-body pilot, but some of them seem pretty heavy at over 5 ounces. Maybe I'll just pretend I have a pilot, and then when the plane is on the ground I'll imagine that the pilot is off getting something to eat.
