VooDoo!!!! Precision Cut Foam Cores
« on: October 18, 2019, 08:18:37 PM »
Tom Luciano of northern New Jersey and I collaborated on this project.  He had a pretty foam wing VooDoo that flew just like a wood VooDoo at their Vintage combat Flyin.

The airfoil is matched to the plans in the Goldberg Double VooDoo kit and 1.5in. thick at the highpoint.  It will accomodate either a pacifier or a 1.25in. bladder tube.
Top and bottom flat spars and a leading edge slot for a similar strip of wood to help prevent dings and foam wing cuts.

The wings are stack cut as usual, two panel in one block.  The span will be 24 in. because the extra would simply be trashed and adds a lot of time to cutting the blanks.

Besides, a 48in. VooDoo with 460 squares and an aspect ratio of 5 would make an awesome flying machine for demonstrations.

Pricing will be similar to other wings this size- $45 for a box of 4 sets of cores, or $15 for one set.  Plus shipping, likely will be UPS because the post office prices skyrocketed last month.
