Please post your flight times for your Voyager E's

Hey, I got a Voyager E coming and I'm going to be running an Astro Flight brushless 020 3 turn with a Hacker Master esc.

I was planning on running 8 cell Sanyo hrsc 2600's nimh and Cp 2400's nicad, I was wondering what you guys are getting for flight times in your VE's.
and your recommendations. Is 8 cells good for this heli? If I can get at least 8-10 minutes of hover time, I'm happy.

I get 7-8 min hover\circuits, over 10min of flight if I land and rest for a few seconds every 3-5 min.

B40-8L, Kontronik esc, 17tooth pinion, about 1600-1700 rpm, 10 cell 3000mAh using MS carbons.

Wow Whyrlybird, those are great hover times for those packs, what kind of outside temperatures are you flying in over there?


TMP00283, thanks for the reply, what kind of temperatures are you flying in there also, I'm going to be in 75-90 degree F temps here and wonder how temperature makes a difference.

Hi !


I think the temperature here about 60~70F degree (this is in the dome).
I just have brushless for my VE last couple months.
Then I don't know how for the summer and fly outside ...???

(Note; The headspeed about 1820rpm in first three minutes then ... lower...donw ...?)
