I don't think you will get it much cheaper if directly bought from the manufacturer, maybe just by a small margin. 159€ is a fair price in my opinion regarding the VIP is about 140€, an Ariane P5 is about 260€. The manufacturer is most probably located in the Czech Republic (Heinrich?) and calculates its prices in Euro. Avionik prices will also go up due to the weak dollar.
But at least you can deduct 16% VAT if ordered from the US, that's about 137€ (or 185$) plus 24€ (32$) shipping.

Ah, I can't resist to the temptation any longer and will order one tonight

Kris, Keep us posted on your thoughts!
The fuse looks a bit constructed like a sokol, with the linkages of a VIP?


Gotta ask....what will you be fitting it out with?

Hey Rob,

I hope I will be able to fit 2 packs of TP2100 3s in the fuse. Motor will either be a FUN400-42 or Mega 16/15/2, judging from the pictures the spar of the wing looks solid enough to handle the power.

Hi dbeardsl,

Producer of Voodoo is from Czech Republik. I bought it from his. He sell in Czech and Slovak Republik, but his price is also 159,-EUR. It is not expensive I think because plane has high performance, excelent quality and it is very finished.(half hour of work and you are ready to fly)
Hoellein is seller for Germany and pobably other country.
Your bad luck is weak Dollar vs Euro.

I received my VOODOO today from Hoellein
The quality of the parts is absolutely perfect, never seen such shiny and glossy surfaces, the fuse with tailfins weighs 62g, the wing is 72g, so a total of only 134g.

Please find attached some pictures:

stop posting pictures..... THIS IS KILLING ME!!!!

I must have one......

What a nice model! I notice the fuse is made of mostly glass? Too bad its not constructed with the same materials as the Stinger. The Stinger has one heck of a stiff / sturdy fuse!

VERY VERY nice plane.

looks like I may have to call Germany after all!

Hello of you.

I want it by all means.
It doesn't sell in Japan, and there is only a personal import because it doesn'
t become popular so much.

Please introduce the shop sent out to foreign countries by packing it so that
someone should not break.

Konnichi wa k-yoko san!

You can order the VOODOO from Hoellein, he ships worldwide (Nihon mo daijobu), fast service, reasonable shipping charges, and good packaging job, damage very unlikely:

http://www.hoellein.com/ -> manzoku!

Send your order by fax because he doesn't have an online ordering system.
