Light weight pilot bust for 48" planes

No flying today because of more rain, so I decided to try something to nicen up my new Extreme Flight Extra EXP

I took a 73x96mm craft egg (pack of two for $3.50). Cut off the smaller tip at an angle, and glued the two together after hollowing out some of the head with a dremel. To round off the lover edged of the head, I rolled them on the table to slightly crush the foam. A little paint, and I had a nice looking pilot figure for 48" ish aerobatic planes at a scant 8 grams Whole process took about an hour.

Thanks for this. I'm gonna use it on some of my F3P and scale planes. Saves me moolah over buying a 3D figure at the LHS, that's for sure!
