Thanks in advance.
I'm similar in build, 6'5" and mostly torso. I did not fit. Couldn't get my knees under the panel and my head hit the canopy.
That being said, I didn't get a lot of time to play with the seat and cushions or rudder pedals. I think it may be possible with the tall pilot mod and different rudder pedal positioning.
