Default EZ MODELS VOODOO

I have a EZ Models Voodoo, it has a Saito 91 in it and I have a APC 12x8 prop on it. Just wondering if anyone could give me some suggestions on what size prop would be the best for it, to get the most speed. The plane has a 54 inch span and weighs about 6lbs. Not sure what rpms the engine turns with the 12x8. Any info would be great.


Thanks Jody

What prop are you talking about? The 12x8 or the 10x10. Also thought about running a 11x9 4 blade APC.

I'd start with a 12x12 - a Saito .91 should pull that to nine and a half grand. Also, try an 11 inch prop with as much pitch as you can find.

May I ask where you purchased this airplane? I can't seem to find one. I would like to race a friend who flies a Dago Red.

Sorry for the delay on replying to your question. I bought the plane off of ebay, it came with the engine, retract servo and alerion servos. All I had to do is install throttle,rudder and elevator servo and receiver. Not to bad for $300.00 dollars, I thought. ai think you still can buy these from MRC still, they go for $300.00 just for the kit.



Thanks Jody
