I hear the voyager is real smoothe and powerful, but it's more expensive to buy AND maintain...plus it couldn't possibly perform better then the EVO !

I just want an opinion. I am looking to replace my deceased Raptor and want a great heli. I have posted this in the JR Forum and surprisingly the Evo is winning there also.

not really surprising. This is THE best 50 heli out there. I am sure the poll will show this in any forum.

Looks like the Jr heli can't even win in the JR forum. That should tell you something about the EVO.

Have you ever flown a JR helicopter? Probably not. According to your profile you don't have a job so therefore you couldn't afford one. Sorry… you’re missing out.

The EVO 50 and the Voyager 50 are not even comparable!!! The EVO is a cheap plastic tank, that wouldn’t even hold up to a Raptor and the Voyager is an aluminum, precision flying machine. That flies in most cases as well as a Vigor.

While Mudboggers comments may be uncalled for or unwarranted so are yours.

Have you ever flown an EVO? Have you ever put one together?

Now you see I CAN talk about both because I have owned both. IMO the JR product is good and flys just about as well as the EVO. However, the Voyager is WAY overpriced. The JR line of helis in general are overpriced. The EVO gives you really good bang for the buck. Flys just as well if not better for less money. What's wrong with that?

So if you have some REAL experience with both helis then let's hear it. Until then you (IMO) don't really hold much credible weight.

Junior Man,

To say that the evo is a "The EVO is a cheep plastic tank, that wouldn’t even hold up to a Raptor and the Voyager is an aluminum, precision flying machine." is really just trolling. I know I should have just let the post go by but it was just so tempting.

Mr. Mudbogger2 may not be able to afford venture. I know I can't. The thing looks pretty expensive. So he just settles for getting more helicopter with less money.

Are you really serious? The two helicopters may not be in the same category. Thank goodness. I guess you would have to add more bushings and take away the driven tail of the Evo to get them in the same category. I didn't even mention the large price difference. Do I even need to say what happens to those precision metal frames when they hit the ground hard enough. I didn't realize the Venture was so weighed so little. The Evo flies pretty light for a tank.

I wouldn't go as far as saying a evo wouldn't hold up to a raptor. I wonder what people that have flown both with think about that statement. I have flown both and I don't see what your saying.

I am sure the voyager flies very well. It looks like a nice helicopter. But I am pretty sure its not perfect. I would say the same about every other helicopter. even the evo.

I am glad you like it enough to stick up for it

I have to agree with Slant911 and Harlan on this one. I've setup and flown the very nice Voyager 50 and a truck load of Sceadu's.
They compair nicely in most area's except price and customer care. While JR will help their flyers.....NOBODY can hold a candle to MRC-Altech's Jeff Green and Team.

Belive it or not! Choice is always up to the buyer.

Proof is usually found out by my signature slogan.

traderdave2, slant911,

While you both have what may seem to you as valid points. I still in know way will agree that the EVO 50 is comparable to the Voyager 50. The only thing they have in common is they both are 50 size model helicopters.

The EVO is designed to compete with the Raptor or should I say the inexpensive 50 size model helicopters. The Voyager 50 is not, that’s what the Venture 50 is for. The Voyager is for the pilot that wants to spend more money, I won't say what I really think...

Yes the EVO is an inexpensive (I shouldn't have used the word cheap… sorry) and very capable helicopter. If that's what you’re looking for than it's a good bang for the buck. Go for it!!!

Yes I have l flown both!!!

traderdave2,
Do I even need to say what happens to those precision metal frames when they hit the ground hard enough.
I don't care what happens to those precision frames when they hit the ground. I didn't buy it with the intention of smashing it into the ground. That's what the Raptors are for, or maybe the EVO.

I have to agree a little that some JR parts are on the pricey side. I have been in the manufacturing world for more than 12 years I grantee you I know what quality is. JR parts are expensive for a reason… quality is not cheap. It cost money to make a good product. I'm not saying the EVO isn't but all things aside the JR stuff is better from a quality stand point.

Mudbogger2 post got under my skin and I couldn’t stop myself from biting back. If I said anything out of line I apologize.

To be honest I think all the model helis are good in there own way. It's amazing that they don't just explode in the air while we beet the snot out of them.

Now we could go on and on and got know where or we could go flying together and have some fun.


See ya.

Not sure what I said that was out of line. Some of it may have been in a smart @ss type of tone but nothing I said isn't out of line. This poll is in 3 forums Main, Hirobo and JR. EVO is winning in all 3. I do manage to make enough money begging to keep a Freya and Evo in the air so why would I need a job? Please excuse my comments I am just in that type of mood.

guys,guys,guys.......why dont u let the jury decide . bharkin was asking a question and he demands an answer in his poll .and JRMAN,i dont think u should start a debate just because the voyager has lost in the poll ,u should be convincing bharkin to buy the voyager and not by bashing the EVO
these is just my 0.2 cents

Thanks for putting it all in perspective. I just wanted to know what people think about the question I asked, not if they have jobs or if the parts are of better quaility. I have flown all major brands, with the exception of MinAir, as I haven't hit the lottery yet , and I do think that JR's parts may be a little better made, from a fit standpoint. But, all in all, I still miss my little green Shuttle, except for that damn starter belt. The Raptors I have had, did everything I could do without any problems. The Voyager looks like the Vigor I had at one time, just a little smaller with metal frames. The price of the parts don't always mean that the helicopter is ant better than any other one. Just ask Alan Szabo about his bone stock plastic Raptors that he flies! I apreciate all the input I have gotten from all 3 forums and I have decided to get a new Evo 50, but with the new TT 600 mm blades and JR landing gear. So I guess I'll have the best of all 3 worlds!!

For what it is worth.... I love the Voyager line....... A great flying heli, rock solid, but will tumble with the best. Yes, the pricing on a couple of the most common parts that break in a crash are on the expensive side. The boom is what boggles me, but a rappy 50 boom will work, as well as the belt, so there goes the major price difference.
From my experience with the Venture, plastic head is less expensive, but more parts break in a normal boom strike, tip over etc...
The Evo 50 looks like a real good deal.... sounds like it flys great as well.

Maybe the reason the Voyager poll is in the "Al Gore" league is due to the fact the the J.R guys are flying and not broken down surfing the webb! LOL...... Just kidding!!!
