Default RE: 1/8 scale TopFlite Corsair Mods

A reminder to those that can't find the time to read ALL of the posts here: The Top Flite '.60 size' Corsair is 1/8 scale. That means that it's dimensions are 1/8 the size of a full scale/ actual Corsair.

Now: math time. If a typical pilot is about 6 feet tall (give or take a couple if inches) or 72", then an ideal size (standing hieght) for our RC pilots should be 1/8th of that, or about 9".

In my opinion, it looks better to err on the side of too large, than too small. So, as Rob suggested: a 12" pilot will probably look better than a 6" pilot, but the ideal pilot size will be between the 2.
