Default Hangar 9 Taylorcraft... Help Please!

Hi, I crashed my Hangar 9 Taylorcraft due to aileron servo stripping... Should of put 645's in it.. Guys check your servo mounts in the wing. Very poorly done..
Can someone please measure the width and height of the motor firewall for me? I am rebuilding entire forward fuse.
Thanks a lot.... Mike

There are two versions of the Hanger 9 Taylorcraft... might be wise to clarify which. Single piece wing or two panel wing? I can help if the earlier version single piece wing.

What servos do you have in the plane ? Mine came with AR6000's Two burnt up . They are discontinued so they were replaced with AR6020's which are now discontinued too .. I think 645's would make me feel safer too....My Buddy has this plane and he has had it for a few yrs and flys the bag off it .. He has the AR6000 servos and had to replace one of them but hasen't had a lick of trouble with the rest of them ..The JR821's are passable servos too...Do you still need the fire wall measurements? I could pull my cowl and get them for you ...

Hi, thanks for your reply. I have the plane almost rebuilt.
I would like to know what angle on the verticle, up/down in degrees is, to set the firewall. Not sure if you could get that or how to go about it. I have a fair guess from the crashed pieces so I may just have to go for it.
I am putting 645s thru out the plane this time..
Thanks again.

hi Spritwind
I don't have one but I would go with 1 deg down and 2 deg's to the right, Or you can all ways shim it to once you have it rebuilt.

Just my thoughts

cheers bob t

I can't say for sure about the T Craft but I just built a 1/4 scale BUSA J3 Cub and it called for 2 deg's right and 1 deg down .. It would be a close bet...You could easily shim from there if any changes were nec. .. The Cub flys beautifully with that thrust .. I am sure you must be aware that the cowl is available completely finished and it is not that expensive...I bought one for mine just in case...Plus the windshield...

Center of Gravit y
An important part of preparing the aircraft for flight is
properly balancing the model.
1. Attach the wing panels to the fuselage. Make sure
to connect the leads from the aileron to the appropriate
leads from the receiver. Make sure the leads are not
exposed outside the fuselage before tightening the wing
bolts. Your model should be flight-ready before balancing.
2. The recommended Center of Gravity (CG) location for
your model is 7
7/8–81/4 inches (199mm–209mm) back
from the leading edge of the fuel tank as shown. Mark
the location of the CG on the bottom of the top wing.
3. When balancing your model, make sure it is assembled
and ready for flight. Support the plane upright at the
marks made on the wing with your fingers or a commercially
available balancing stand. This is the correct
balance point for your model.
4. You should find the CG to be very close with the components
installed as shown in this manual. If the nose
of your aircraft hangs low, add weight to the rear of the
aircraft. If the tail hangs low, add weight to the nose of
the aircraft. Self-stick weights (HAN3626) are available at
your local hobby store and work well for this purpose.
CAUTION:
You must adjust your aircraft’s center
of gravity and balance your model properly before
attempting flights.

Anybody know where I can get a new cowl for my T craft? It is the earlier one piece wing version.
