I don't know if the Venture comes as a 50 yet. You would have to assemble the 50-size heli from JR Ergo 50 parts.

I am into "easy" and went with the R60 and I'm very happy. If you want the power of the 50 on a smaller helicopter; if it were me, I'd get the R50 and the kit would be ready to go - no other messing around needed.

He asked about the Voyager 50, not the Venture! The Venture 50 is being advertised in the UK mags now, so I assume it is available.

Dave, you're right. I do see the reference to the JR Voyager now.

My vote, R50....Cost a lot less when you accidently hit the "dirt brakes"

R50 or Voyager

It comes down to if you want CCPM or standard mixing. The Voyager and Venture are heavier then the R50. I went for the R50 V2 and had the first flight today. Power to weight is not a problem with it. You might also look at the Hirobo Sceadu 50 also.

50

I say go for the R50 unless you are ready to jump to a 60. Crash kits cost only 40.00 and the heli is smooth and responsive. I am going to break it in 5 more tanks tomorrow and then put it through some test.

EXTREME FLYING:

Don't sleep on the Sceadu, you saw mine. It is a very nice machine (I have had three and would still have them if I didn't want to go to 60-80 sized machines and there is a guy (and I) at the field that knows a ton about Hirobo...

You have a Rappy now - you could just upgrade that to a 50 and save some cash. No one flys the voyager at our field - not much support there.

MHO.

hehe.... i think you should buy what you want. essentially, what you did was go into the lions den and ask opinions about a heli which is fully supported in this forum.

if you went into a hirobo forum and asked what the best heli was, what do you think they would say? same goes for MA, TT, Century, JR, Quick, Bergen, Vario, Robbe, and every other heli manufacturer out there.

Well, I have an Ergo 50 CCPM which is pretty close to the Voyager and I have a Raptor 50. I fly the Raptor all the time, flies great, stays in one piece unless I do something stupid and is cheap and quick to fix when I do.

The Ergo also flies well, but is not as agile as my Raptor. It is a higher-quality machine in that it is metal-framed and has metal bearing blocks BUT needs more maintenance than the Raptor. I have replaced one frame side and one landing gear bracket that have failed from fatigue. I had one minor accident with the Ergo last May and have only flown it once or twice since, simply because it took months to source the parts I needed.

If I were to buy another 50, it would a be another Raptor, I am certain of that.

After having a Venture 30 I am now flying a Raptor 30 and love it. They both fly the same and are both great helis, but the Raptor parts are dirt cheap!!!! Also I can get Raptor parts anywhere!!!!
