That is pretty strange but then again that is what gives it a flavor I really like!

Is it yours?

Not mine, its being auctioned on eBay somewhere. I just thought it was rather unique. I built dozens of VooDoos but never one like that.

Wonder why the motors are so far apart.
My take is .. It flies like S*@T.!

Probably does OK until the first one quits. Then its probably chasing you around or flopping like an albatross with one bad wing ;->

Are a pair of .049's enough to even wingover a VooDoo?!?

How does the old saying go? "When the first engine quits the other engine will take you to the scene of the accident."

A VooDoo bipe would probably require about 10" of separation between the wings and a pretty large stab/elevator along the lines of what's on a Thunderbird. I'm guessing the fuselage would want to be at least 30" long from prop to elevator hinge.

What were the failure mode(s) on yours?
