About this Plan

Voodoo. Control line combat model.

Later kitted by Carl Goldberg.

Quote: "Here's a full-size PDF format plan I've worked up for Riley Wooten's immortal Voodoo control line combat model published in the July 1961 issue of Model Airplane News, and subsequently kitted by Carl Goldberg. The Voodoo was the design that popularized the stabilator type combat model and it was one of the first combat models to fly at 100 mph plus.

I built and flew Carl Goldberg Voodoos back in the 1960s. My first Voodoo was powered by a Fox 35 stunt and I made a lot of flights with it in a circle that I was allowed to keep cut low out in the hay field. That Voodoo was really fun to sport fly and it is the model that I really learned to stunt with. So the Voodoo has special nostalgic appeal for me.

I used a 36 in wingspan as the metric for scaling the full size plan. A sincere thanks to the anonymous collaborator who provided the high resolution scan of the original magazine plan page that I used to generate this full size plan, as well as scans of the magazine article pages presented here."

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
