Description

The Voodoo pylon racer is probably the most complete and highest quality model we sell. It certainly looks the fastest, and may well be the speediest. The Voodoo is beautifully constructed, with an absolutely outstanding finish, attention to detail, and quality of design. The Voodoo is also blazingly fast, with its strong high aspect ratio wing, short nose (allowing heavier motors), large battery compartment, and excellent aerodynamic design.

The Voodoo flies exactly where you point it and is a very good first racer. With a hot setup the model can easily reach 260 Km/hr (160 mph) or more.

The perfectly molded glass fuselage has carbon reinforcement and the firewall, fin, and tailplane already fitted. The firewall already has the motor mounting holes drilled (on a 16mm PCD) and the ready-hinged elevator has the horn molded in, with a ball link fitted.

Voodoo servo mounting and wing constructionThe flawless molded wing has a carbon spar, with gap sealed ailerons, and aileron torque rods installed. These have the balls secured on the end of the arms, to engage in the supplied control rod hardware, and ensure a totally slop free and geometrically correct linkage to the two aileron servos. This allows the ailerons to be drooped for landing, allowing the model to be landed easily at a reasonably low speed. The wing skin is a very rigid glass/balsa/glass sandwich with a substantial carbon spar.

The Voodoo is supplied with very high quality accessories including superb pushrods with ball links, and a clever mount for the elevator servo to easily facilitate installation in the rear of the fuselage. The only work required is fitting the motor and RC. The only gluing required is attaching the aileron servos. The racer can be completed in one or two lazy evenings.

Nice but expensive

The voodoo arrived in a large box very well packaged. It is surprising to see how small it is in such a large box. The finish is very good. Getting back to size, there isn't a lot of room to get everything in, so it does take a bit of fiddling to make everything fit.
I've installed a 28mm 3000kV motor and 40A ESC, but from cheaper brands than suggested here. With a 4.1 x 4.1 prop and 1250 3S pack the model flies pretty fast, but not as blisteringly fast as I was expecting. I may try a 3500-3700kV motor at a later date. Landings were fast(ish) and it does glide for quite a bit. It also gets very small very quickly in the sky.
In terms of value, it is very expensive for what it is, not helped by the fact that you have to buy absolutely everything to get it in the air. I also thing the 22 postage costs is a rip-off within the UK. It is currently the most expensive and smallest addition to my hangar, although it is fun.

HyperFlight Comment: The delviery cost was due to the fact that the parcel was not delivered to a mainland UK destination.

Fantastic

My voodoo arrived well packaged and protected very quickly. Quality is superb although it is a very tight squeeze to fit everything in. Instructions show layout as very simple but try finding an esc and battery the size that is shown??!! Flies great and very impressed.

The model arrived securely packed, all be it a couple of days late as Parcelforce misdirected it to the wrong sorting office. Quality was as good as the VIP it was replacing, i.e. superb. It is slightly harder to fit out than the VIP, partly because of the two servo wing which I stuck with. Space is even more at a premium than the VIP.

Mine has Mega 16/15/2 with Hacker Master Spin 44 ESC. With a 1300 TP 65C LiPo I could not get balance within 20mm of the recommended rear most point, even with the ESC less than 1mm behind the motor. I have therefore put the ESC behind the battery and partially beneath the rx behind the wing saddle, to get the heaviest component as far forward as possible. This gets the CoG within a couple of mm of the recommendation and 10g weight beneath the motor inside gets me there. I hate adding weight but having once flown a VIP with rearward CoG after the battery slipped back on launch I don't want to repeat that experience. I aim to maiden in the next day or two.

Overall I am very happy with the model and Hyperflight service. It will be interesting to see if the Voodoo is as fast as the VIP - one thread on RCG suggests it is very slightly slower on identical power setups. As long as it does not flutter flat out on about 500 watts into a 4.1x4.1 I shall be happy. (The VIP never exhibited any signs of flutter in 5 years of flying.)

I 'pre-ordered' and received my Voodoo very promptly once in stock. The quality and finish of the Voodoo is awesome, worth of every penny!

Voodoo

Buying this little pylon racer has to be one of the best things I have purchased in many years. Although I own a lot of RC glow powered planes, this is by far the most pleasurable and interesting things that I now own.

Providing you set these up correctly they will leave your hand, giving you a straight forward and interesting flight.

They are very fast and agile in the air. You CAN NOT take your eyes of it once it has been launched on full power.

I found that not only does it fly very well on full power but equally flies really well on very little or no power, making landings quite easy. (depending on your approach and airspeed)

Depending on how much movement you add to the elevator and ailerons it can do very sharp crisp tight turns. Be careful if you are flying low as it would not take much to pile it into the ground .

If this is going to be your first pylon racer then I would suggest launching it on full power heading into the sky and once it is airborne come off the power and gentle fly it around until you feel confident flying it. Don't try and do too much on your first flight.

I have several rates on a three position switch, which allows me to choose between soft and hard turns. I would strongly recommend following the instructions to the letter regarding the amount of movement you add to the ailerons and elevator.

All in all this is a fantastic kit and I would highly recommend this for the experienced flyer. If you are still a novice and really want one of these, I strongly recommend you get someone to help you as you will come unstuck if you don't !!

Happy flying to all that buy these...There are great !!!
