Default TOLEDO SPECIAL 40 ARF by Hangar 9


"Inspired by free-flight models from the Big Band Era, the Hangar 9 Toledo Special is a unique blend of 1940's styling and smooth-flying sport performance that makes for a swinging' good time at the flying field. Sport aerobatics or simpling boring holes in the sky, the Toledo Special's forgiving flight characteristics let you enjoy both without stressing out. Assembly is a breeze and you have the option of using either glow or electric power and all the necessary hardware for both is included."

Default RE: TOLEDO SPECIAL 40 ARF by Hangar 9

A month or so ago, I was on the Horizon site www.horizonhobby.comand checked out the"New realeases" section.
There I found the Toledo Special and, since I had been looking for a 40 size Cub or Decathalon style plane, thought
that it looked interesting and different from all the "yellow" planes that you see everywhere. AsI read the Overview,
I thought; I'm a product of the 40's.......sometimes, I'm a smooth-flyer........ I'm ready for a swingin" good time.......and
I don't like stressing out......so, it's a natural for me to do the review for RCU. Since Hangar 9 provides all the necessary
hardware for the option of using either glow or electric, it was perfect for me to do the clean & quiet electric version.
It took a little bugging of some industry people, but I GOTIT!!!!!!! Sooooooooo.......LET'S GETITON!!!!

KEY FEATURES:
    [*]"Golden-Age" trim scheme gives plane a classic look and high visibility [*]Bolt-on rudder and stabilizer for ease of assembly [*]Two-piece wing allows for easy transport[/list]SPECS:

    [*]Wingspan: 69.5 in (1765.3mm) [*]Overall Length: 50.8 in (1290.75mm) [*]Wing Area: 702.8 sq in (45.3 sq dm) Flying Weight:6.25 lb [*]Engine Size: Glow 2-cycle .40–.46, 4-cycle .56–.72 [*]Motor Size: E-flite® Power 46 Outrunner [*]Radio: Minimum 4-channel [*]Servos: 5 standard servos (4 for EP option) [*]Trim Scheme Colors: Cream (HANU878), Sky Blue (HANU875) [*]Wing Loading: 20.5 oz per sq ft [*]Spinner Size: 2.25 in (included) [*]Prop Size: 12 x 6.5 or 13 x 7 [*]Speed Control: 60-amp ESC[*]Recommended Battery: 4-cell 3850mAh Li-Po

Hangar 9 always does a great job of packing as all of the kit parts are individually bagged in plastic and
the hardware is bagged and placed in smaller boxes within the main carton. Clear tape is used to fasten
everything together so that there will not be damage from the parts rattling in the box as it is being shipped.
Basically, the packagingis well thought-out and effective!

From the time that you open the box, the Toledo Special will surprise you. There are actually just a few main parts;
    [*]Fuselage[*]L & R Main Wings[*]Elevator[*]Rudder[*]Landing Gear, Wheel Pants, Wheels[*]Cowl[/list]
    All the hardware is in individual plastic bags that are labeled so you know what'swhat.

That sucker sure looks familiar. Maybe from the pages of MA or RCM?

Charley,

Hey, don't waste a lot of time on this, but it would be interesting if you could find that old RCM or
MA issue that might have an article or a photo. The Toledo Special is supposed to be patterned
after an old free-flight plane from years ago.

For an "Old Dog" Grandpa like me, "ARF" was the sound that WONDERDOG made when he barked! Now,
Almost Ready to Fly has a new meaning. TheToledo Special is really ARFed out, andjust take a look at the
tail because it is a bolt-on unit for ease of assembly.Talk about "easy of assembly"...........are you kidding me?
In the old days, "assembly" consisted ofgluing together a ton of balsa sticks! Not any more, right?

The elevator and rudder hinges are already installed and GLUED, even the control horns and tail wheel are
installed! For "ASSEMBLY" all you do is;

    [*]slide the horizontal and vertical stabilizers together[*]slide the threaded rods into the holes in the aft end of the fuselage[*]slide the tail assembly tightly against the fuselage[*]make sure the tailwheel part of the rudder fits into the slot at the rear of the fuselage[*]secure the assembly with two #4 fender washers and two 4-40 lock nuts provided[/list]Do you believe this.......that's it.........you're now done........finished with the tail assembly!

Let's move to installing the aileron servos in the wings. It's not in the exact order of installation as in the instructions,
but I really wanted to get the wings connected so thatI could get a perspective of the wing on the fuselage. Now,
Hangar 9 has another surprise as the ailerons are already installed and pre-hinged, in addition to the control horns.
Is that NICE.......or what?

Since I use a Spektrum DX-7 andHangar 9recommends JR821 servos, that's what was used. Prep the servos
by installing the rubber grommets and brass eyeletsand just follow the excellent instructions. A few things to
pay special attention to;
    [*]center the servoarm in the opening in the servo cover[*]the mounting blocks must be at least 1/16-inch from any edge of the servo cover or it will not fit back into the cutout[*]be sure to wick thin CA ( ZAP works great) into every screw hole to harden the surrounding wood for a better grip[/list]Now, attach a servo extension(a 12" was used) to the servo lead making sure that you use any method you like to
    prevent the connection from pulling apart, once it is inside the wing. Use the pre-installed pull string to thread the
    servo extension through the wing interior and out the round openingabove the wing root. Attach the supplied
    hardware to the pushrod and you got it. Now, do the other wing.

Hey, at my advanced age.....these little naps sure do help alot! With the wing completed, we can now start to install
some of the electronics. The manual is thorough and gives gas, glow and electric instructions.

So, we just have to prep servos for the rudder and elevator and install them in the radio tray slots. Then, the Spektrum
AR7000 receiver was mounted and since the equipment bay is large and accesasable, there is plenty of room to set
up the system any way you like. The satellite receiver mounting position worked out fine, as you can see. Don't
forget to have the antennas positioned perpendicular to each other.

Linkage installation is next and just follow the instructions as they are accurate. In addition, the manual has
some "hints" mixed in with the install photos which are excellent.

Under the nose of the Toledo and in front of the landing gear, is a compartment cleverly designed to house
either the fuel tank or the Li-Po battery. First, the ESC is mounted to the provided battery tray and then this
tray is inserted into the compartment and becomes the floor for the battery& hold down straps. Great idea
and it works perfectly. Just follow the instructions.

Notice in thelast photo,an MPI (#6970) High Current Arming Switch has been used and because the
compartment is large enough, the switch did not have to be mounted through the fuselage. It can be
conveniently armed just before you are ready to fly. This is a simple and effective product to use to
give you an extra margin of safety! Remember, a high powered electric airplane can hurt you
just a bad as a gas or glow powered one. SAFETY FIRST, always!!!! Ohhhhhh......Yeahhhhhhh!!!

Installing the motor on the Toledo is a simple matter as the firewall has all the "T" nuts pre-installed forany of
the power options available. The E-Flight Power 46 Outrunner comes with all the mounting hardware, screws
and standoffs. It's really important to use thread-lock (Pacer Z-42) on all of the motor mounting bolts.
This will prevent any looseining due to vibration from the motor, if any, or just from flying around your field.

The provided motor mount needed to have it's outer holes enlarged a little and again, the instructions give you
the proper info. Don't forget to remove the three plugs in the firewall first, before mounting the motor.
This will allow cooling air to flow over the ESC and battery during flights. We all know how important
this is...........don't we???????

Now was the time for the landing gear assembly, even though it was the first step in the instruction
manual. The one piece gear is simply mounted to the existing T-nuts already installed in the bottom
of the fuselage. Then attach the wheel axles, tires and finally the wheel pants. Again, the instructions
are excellent and just follow them.

The installation of the cowl, matching spinner and prop was a breeze! The cowl already has the holes
in the proper placement and so does the nose of the fuselage. So just use the provided Hex head
screws and that is that. The fit is just perfect! The larger suggested prop ( 14 X 7 E) was fitted to
the prop adapter and then the spinner cone was secured to the backplate. And that was that!

tIANci,

"Retro" is the look, for sure! And, I just have to tell you that the Toledo Special flies as good as it looks!
This build has been a pleasure due to the fact that every part did, "fit just right" as you had commented.
You are right, as there was no stress building thisnice variationof the "standard yellow Cub" (NOT THAT
THERE IS ANYTHING WRONG WITH A STANDARD YELLOW CUB!
)and that's the fact.

Hereare some more "DROOL" photos!

The windshield and the side windows are supplied already cut and trimmed properly and they fit like a glove.
I used PACER Formula 560 canopy glue because it stays where you put it, dires fast andit's bond is clear and
slightly flexable.

I located the CG as the instructions suggested, at 2 3/4" (70mm) back from the leading edge of the wing.
I was slightly nose heavy at first, but just a little move of the battery solved the issue and the Toledo
balanced on the money.

I always check the electronics, right after they are installed, to see that they all work properly and then I
bind my DX-7 and check everything again. Knowing that all was in order, the final step was to set the
control throws. It's wise to center all servos when they are installed and then when the linkage is attached,
make sure that the flying surfaces are in proper allignment as you manually adjust the linkage. This will
make the maiden flight trimming less of a big deal as the plane should track fairly well.

I set both the high and low rates, as the manual suggested, and added some expo; 35% Low & 45% High.

Thanks Papajeff. I have this same plane, also powered with the E-flite Power 46 motor, and I maidened it today. Two clicks of elevator and 1 click of aileron and she was flying level and straight hands-off. Nice rolls and loops and even holds a knife edge pretty well. I'm very pleased with this plane and it's great looking in the air, too. I want to try it on a 5 cell now. Too much power is just right!

Dave

hey Papajeff: I'm a lurker on your build thread and have followed all your postings. I'm interested in the photo of your Toledo beside the Cub. Just so I know for size purposes, is that the Hangar 9 J-3 Cub with Power 46 from Hangar 9 or the larger 1/4 scale Cub with 100" wingspan???

Thanks, Todd

BandBhobbies: let me know how that five cell battery works out for you with the Power 46. I'm wondering if you can tell me how the Power 46 compares power and performance wise with the AXI motor of comparable size their 2826/12 which I'm currently using in a 64-inch wingspan 6.5lb Graupner Taxi Cup.
Thanks, Todd

RFB,

You are almost right, Richard, The Toledo is pictured next to Greg Covey'sThe WorldModels
1/4 scaleCub. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_45..._1/key_/tm.htm
Most of the Cubs, made by the various Mfg's, do look very much alike.

The Toledo wingspan is just about 70" and it flies as if it were much bigger. This plane
is a pleasure to fly and I found it most relaxing just to fly it nice and easy. Takeoffs from
a grass fieldare not a problem, there is more than enough power for agressive flight and
landings are a breeze as long as you set up far enough out from the end of the runway
and just slowly fly it to the ground. Can you tell that I really like this plane?
