Default Well, Here it is.

Here are some weak photos. Have not had a chance to get it outside for better shots. This was the before/after version of the Voodoo I got last year. Since it was such a good plane and survived last season, I totally rebuilt and recovered. Changed the struts from 1/8 to 3/16 and still holds the G2300. This is the 65inch wing size.

Nice job, looks to be my favorite color, monocote metallic red? I just ordered some expoxie paint to do the fuse of my "Zoomer", bright red and hope is comes close to the monocote metallic red that the wings will be done in. $80.00 for paint, and a pint of thinner. Getting to old to keep up with prices. Friend who has a automotive shop told me it would be $200.00 if I started with automotive paint, and clear coat. Oh well, need somethilng that will burn the guy's rear ends in our club raceing season this year, and look good doing it. Hope it will still be alive by next March, may be able to get togeather with the Buddude 8 brothers again for another great day. God only knows what they will come up with, good people. Looks like the bird has retracts. Do your gear doors stay in place and are they a proplem. Just looking for ways to improve something I am building in my head for next year, 91 vr df powered. ENJOY Bro #119

I have the forward side of the gear doors meet the fuselage so that air does ot get between and mess them up.

I bought this plane a year ago as a all around beater. Thing is it was built well and flew great , so i had to take care of it. So I just made it better and made a solid front end in place of the cowl.
