I have used the 22awg HK wires in the past. They are acceptable till about 800mm - if anymore I have seen issues with the high voltage high amp servos. I suggest you test your system when it is at 7.6v (appx 60%) - before you put your aircraft in the air. If you see oscillation on the control surfaces on the ground when you move your sticks hard left-right or up-down on the ground - you have an issue.
I highly recommend you swap to true 20awg wires to eleimnate possible issues.

Good luck and I hope you will not have issues.

Default voyager

This is a very nice plane iike it very much, it is the right size for some very nice jet flying. It looks good in the air.. You get something for your money. But I have one problem with toprc models .Is that you can't get the Voyager in a timely manner. If you go to there website you see the voyager in different color configurations. You should be able to buy this from the factory and they ship it it right out. They could also drop ship it from the factory. it would save a lot of time. I have brought many planes that where drop shipped from asia. By the time you get this plane the way you want 4 months have pass.Part of The season is gone .Also the price is going up as we wait. Just my thoughts

Two colors available for shipping USA only, the Mercedes and the Marine one , all the other colors are on the way to USA in a container, and this is the least expensive way for shipping, individual shipping off big box like this will cost half the cost of the jet.

Where did you did your cg ? This could help others with the same jet because the recommended one is totally wrong, nice flying, I only have a chance to fly 3 times because my turbine had a bad day the starter motor broke and now is way too cold to fly

I followed Victor Diaz's numbers and then kept moving batteries towards fuselage. I am still nose heavy and will probably move the ECU battery back (450g) about 8" or so next time around. I prefer my sports jets to be neutral on inverted 45...

Is a 400' paved runway enough for take offs and landings? Also, any modifications needed on the version 2 Voyager? Will be taking delivery of one today.

400' is more than enough.

2 things I recommend:

1: glass the servo plates for flaps - 2mm plywood is not enough and flexes a little
2: Washers were needed to shim the landing gear for them to be a perfect fit in the wheel wells

50 or so flights on mine now - loving it!

Yesterday I took off 10mm of skin from under the wings to get 33 degrees of aileron throw for a faster roll rate for some rifle rolls. (stock roll rate was too little for a sport jet IMHO)

Use the g10 material is much stronger than carbonfiber

Here are the part numbers of the 10 pin version from Digikey that I ordered. Aero Panda sells them also, but for some reason they only sell them with pins specíd for 16-20 gauge wires. shipped fast, had them in 3 days
