The Super Voyager
is an updated version of the Voyager
paper airplane with a larger wing for longer range flights. The Super Voyager is a fairly simple drone paper airplane and is remarkable forgiving. It is an excellent aircraft for introduction to miniature paper aviation.
The Super Voyager was not an aircraft that had been planned on more than a few days prior to publishing. Originally, I had hoped to replace the Albatross
paper airplanes with an aircraft that did not
have a constant chord wing. However, in testing, modernized Cardinal
variants experienced difficulties and as a result, delays. To fill in in at least an interim slot, I decided to design a newer, slightly larger variant of the Voyager with greater long range abilities than its basis. The effort in designing the Super Voyager was rather conservative, but the resulting aircraft is still excellent.
This is one of my most versatile aircraft too, and with that versatility it can work in several roles; such as testbed, demonstration cruiser and messenger aircraft. The Super Voyager may be useful for educators seeking to introduce students to aviation, flight dynamics, physics and geometry among other topics.
Some potential experiments possible with this airframe include:
•Weight and balance
•Hangtime versus other aircraft
•How surface inequality can affect aircraft (geometry/shape studies)
