AWESOME!....But I bet it didn't take half the day for you to figure out how to do it!  Looks mighty fresh!  I'm feeling the need now to build a Voodoo to replace my old abandoned one. Everythings kinda on hold till I get moved  to a new house.....with an entire basement for my hobbies!   😃

The most difficult part of building a Voodoo is sourcing the proper sized leading edge. I stocked up on a lot of these back in the day and I use them as I see fit. Sig still offers a solid leading edge but it's not really the same profile and accurate thickness but it's close enough. I prefer bladders over tanks so I don't install tanks in mine. That would be your next problem. While you can find a tank that fits, the tank needs to be reworked for several reasons. The original instructions on the Voodoo I believe recommends a Veco T-21 tank. My memory could be clouded as it's been a while. That tank is a wide wedge. Due to the hard maneuvers a Voodoo can generate, the fuel load runs away from the pickup tube which can cause disastrous results. Therefore, it was recommended to use backplate pressure to insure a continuous engine run. This requires a shotgun blast of the tanks internals and installing a pressure line.

Now, if your not up to doing the two step anymore in the center of the circle, a Fox .35, OS MAX.35 or a Mccoy or better yet your Enya .35 (Although much heavier) would work in stock form with little to no modifications. It may just need the tail booms lengthened a bit for the Enya. I just rebuilt a Wooten Sneeker which is setup using a tank. In my opinion, the name Sneeker name isn't as appealing as the Voodoo. The Voodoo seemed to steal all the glory but the Sneeker in my opinion is far superior to the Voodoo. The Voodoo doesn't maintain speed through the maneuvers, it flops and flounders through them as the speed bleeds off and the Sneeker while losing speed gracefully maintains good posture throughout.

My old Voodo had a wedge tank installed internally. Manuevers? I'd be happy to pull off an ocasional loop. Don't have the coordination or reflexes to fly the stunt pattern anymore anyway!
Fred...EVERYTHING on a cell phone is seriously frustrating for me! I don't have a computer,and the tablet I do have won't work in the hole I live in! That will change hopefully, as I am moving within a month !
