Some work I did suggests that TC spark length roughly follows a
square law for power input. For my coils, I use:
spark length = 1.7*sqrt input power from wall-plug
This works for my small coils (42" and 64" sparks), and for large
coils such as Greg Leyh's coils (Electrum and the other one).
It's an empirical formula. The 1.7 factor is to make it "come out
