Has anyone had overheating problems with their Voyagers?

The Voyager fan shroud is perty cheesey compared to the Vigor fan shroud.

My buddy and I were looking at it, and thought about extending the Voyager shroud down so it would get direct airflow over the fins of the engine (OS 50). Instead of just stopping at the top of the head like the stock one does.

But then there is still the issue of the shroud not being inclosed underneath. I would think a nice two piece fan shroud would be more appropirate for a $500 heli.

Does anybody know if a shroud from another manufacturer would work in the Voyager.

I have an Ergo 50 that I extended the shroud because I felt too much of the cooling fins were exposed. Since that time KSJ started making an extended shroud. I'm not sure how different the shroud setup is on the Voyager, but you might be able to use the KSJ shroud.

We have a heap of Voyager 50 flying over here and none of them have overheating problems. The IMZ literally hangs out the end of the shroud by 5 mm. Extending the shroud can be done and there is no reason why you can't do it. That little bit of insurance does cost anything. I know what your talking about with the fan shroud design but I don't believe the problem lies directly bellow the fan but should have a better direction of the airflow at the engine head. All said and done it does work but it wouldn't take much effort on JR's behalf to make it a damn side better.

No rain on flying days:)

KSJ fan shroud on V50

Yes use the KSJ fan shroud on the Voyager. The stock shrouds are the same for the Ergo and Voyager. The real good thing is you dont have to do any triming.
