Hi Guy's

Does anyone know if there is a metal upgrade fan available for the JR Venture 90 Heli ?? If so where ?? I'd like to replace the stock plastic fan if possible.

JR have discontinued the Metal fan that they make for the Venture and Sylphide as they found that it worked just as well as plastic stock fan!

I ran my Ventures in fueslages for over 2 years without any overheating problems.

Why do you want to change it?

Hi Steve.

Thanks a lot for your reply. I really appreciate it.

I've had some overheating problems in the past (although not too serious !!) and these were pretty much sorted by fitting a Quick UK alloy fan. I've got one of these fitted on my Airskipper 50 and it works just great. The metal fan I referred to in my post is not meant for a Venture 90, but rather for the AS90 I'm currently building as I'm lead to beleive that they are the same.

I suppose I'm just being cautious, by fitting a metal fan to my new Airskipper 90, thinking that it's one less problem to worry about, but I'll take your advice and go with the stock fan.

Thanks again for your help.

Cheers

Garry

Steve.

Having tried various fuels in the past, I've now settled with
CoolPower 20% as it gives consistant run's on my pumped 50 Hyper.
I think that my past overheating problems we're down to a combination of either fuel and/or exhaust, and the replacement of the fan was just a part of a process of elimination to solve the issue.

I don't 3D (as I'm not really into that style of flying)I prefer
the smoother and more precise F3C/FAI and sport's style.

Thanks again for coming back on this.

Cheers

Garry

Exhaust was probrably the cause.

Having flown Shinya Kunni's AS90 on Jap fuel and Bekra 20% flying both FAI and 3D I can say that it does not need a metal fan and the stock placstic fan is ok. Shinya flew this model at 3DM '06 in the roasting temperatures.....
