Slartibartfast: thanks for the tip, but I am not using this video for marketing. I have another shorter and slowed clip for showing potential client's which has royalty free music included.

With regards to the Voyager 50 E setup, its a great machine.

How long have you been into aerial photography? Where are you located?

cheers,
Dean

Dean,

What video camera are you using, I looked throught the post but didn't see any mention (probably just me not looking properly!!)

I am getting quite interested in the electric side of things and have been pricing up the Maxi Joker, but noticed that the Voyager seems a fair amount cheaper!!

I see it uses the 30 sized airfoil mount and wondered how much wieght the voyager could lift.

Did I also read some where that JR had stopped producing this Voyager?

Thanks,
Dean

Leegolf: Hey there.

Actually I used a canon A80 for short video clips that I posted here.


The Voyager E 50 is a great machine!

I think Electric is the way to go. I am running the 3300 nickel packs right now.

I am not sure about the production of the Voyager 50... I will check the JR forum.


cheers,
Dean

Hi Dean,

Do you know what the heaviest Camera your setup is likely to carry is?, Just trying to workout if it is worth paying the extra for the Joker rather than the Voyager.

And as I think I will be starting off with stills and may move to video if there is the demand maybe it worth just going for the Voyager.

I have found the Electric voyager for sale in the UK, but I think it may be a 30 sized model rather than the 50 that they have for sale at Airfoil.

Am I right in saying that when you ordered you system Airfoil was out of stock of Voyagers so you got one from elsewhere?

If so do you know if the Voyager that Airfoil offers is called a 50, because they have modified it to take larger blades and boom or if it is a different model to the one I have seen.

Thanks agian,

Dean (That's my name a well, Didn't make that clear in the last post!!)

If you are considering a Joker or a Voyager, go for the Joker, you'll be glad you did! You never know what you'll be carrying on a flight, and having the lifting power is a good thing.

Also, just the difference between the Joker-CX and the Maxi-Joker is surprising - the Maxi will not only lift more, but is much smoother in the air. Slower, sure - but no vibrations and flies like a big ship with a lot of inertia. I'd go for the big blades (800mm) spinning at 1200RPM over the smaller ones (700mm) at 1800RPM any time for a camera ship!

If you are shooting either stills or video, remember that on occasion it is nice to be able to zoom in a bit to compose the picture without having to worry about the camera shaking!

Leegolf (Dean):

There is a big cost difference in the Joker and The Voyager 50 E from Airfoil.

You can pick up a JR Voyager 50 kit most good hobby shops if John currently does not have any in stock, or you could just get one from Airfoil and just wait a little extra time is all.


The Voyager 50 E from airfoil is a JR Voyager 50 kit with an electric conversion, NOT the 30 sized machine.


I am not sure about the total payload limit for the Voyager 50 E with the 3300 packs, but it would be higher with lipo packs powering the motor.

I hope that helps,
Dean
