Any 6ft 4" LAA pilots out there?

1.93 metres if you must!

Just wondering if there is ANY taildragger that I might fit into, without having to design or modify and build from scratch :D

Obviously it depends on the relationship between body length and leg length so just because one 6ft4 pilot fits doesnt mean I will, but at least it'll give me somewhere to start.

(I suppose I should mention that weight is commensurate with height, so payload also has a bearing!)

Groppo Trail possibly? If you are near me (Tatenhill) you are welcome to come and sit in mine with the seat adjusted to the rearmost mounting holes. Suspect body length may be more of an issue though.

Oh and meant to say I'm 5'5" at a stretch so may not be a great judge of space available!
