    DeNight Special 50 ARF by Hangar 9



    THE DeNIGHT SPECIAL 50 ARF by HANGAR 9
    has recently arrived at Horizon Hobby. This model is an exciting sport-scale ARF delivering a
    tremendous flying experience with a nostalgic feel, (that sounds good to me) and comes complete
    with a traditional trim scheme and matching helmeted pilot. The DeNight is offered with all the
    necessary parts for either glow or electric power. I decided on the clean, quiet, dependable and
    powerful ELECTRIC option.



    Now, let's take a lookat the build of this unique

    "NOBULL" ELECTRICPYLONRACER!

    RE: DeNight Special 50 ARF by Hangar 9

    Overview:
    "During the 1950's and 60's, Bart DeNight's one-of-a-kind Formula 1 speedster was a force
    to be reconed with on the full-scale air racing curcuit. Peter Bergstrom's design team, at Hangar 9,
    has wonderfully captured the look and feel of the DeNight Special with this exciting sport-scale ARF.
    Designed to accept a wide range of glow and electric powerplants, the DeNight Special ARF will give
    you all the speed and thrills you would expect of a scale-looking air racer without any of the tricky flight
    characteristics. Assembly takes just a few evenings and most of the details, such as the authentic
    trim scheme and painted pilot figure, are already added for you."

    KEYFEATURES:

    - Authentic UltraCote trim scheme is a realistic reproduction of the paint scheme
    on the full-scale version flown by Bart DeNight himself.

    - Prepainted fiberglass cowl provides ample room for side mounting the ESC on
    the motor mount and in the cooling airflow.

    - Two-piece plug-in wing makes for shorter assembly time and is especially
    convenient for storage and transport.

    - Painted pilot head included.

    - Motor mount for electric motor is included.

    -Removable top hatch for easy access to electronics.

    - Pre-hinged ailerons and rudder.

    - All control horns installed.

    -Painted fiberglass cowl and wheel pants.

    - All necessary hardware in included.

    RE: DeNight Special 50 ARF by Hangar 9

    PACKAGING:

    Most builds, and/or reviews, usually state an assessment of the manner in which the model
    was packed, inside thecardboard box with all the beautiful pictures on it, so it might survive
    the usualkind and respectfull treatment thatthe carton gets during shipping. Yeah, right?

    Now, let me tell you that Hangar 9 gets the award of merrit for being a "MASTERPACKER!"
    The typical brown cardboard outer box, with all the labels on it stating "FRAGILE" or
    "HANDLE WITH CARE"(most often misunderstood for CRUSH THISBOX!) is heavy enough
    to take normal (if there is such a thing) shipping stresses. The inner box (the one with the
    nice pictures) is a work of art and looks like it was designed and hand made, just for that
    specific model. Hey, just take a look at the photos below.

    COLOR-MATCH YOURFUSELAGEINTERIOR

    As I was just about to start the build, one of my Pals (actually, one of the best modelers in the Hobby)
    Paul Weigand, came up with a brilliant idea that I want to tell you about. If you are like Paul and me,
    (you are in serious trouble, for sure)and do not like the raw plywood look of the fuselage interior, servo
    tray, motor mount, firewall, canopyframe and so on, Paul found the color-matched soultion.

    So, just go to your localHome Depotwith a color sample from your plane, like thetail or elevator, and
    have the paint department guy mix you up a sample pint. You can choose from matteto gloss finish
    and either latex or acrylic and best of all it's only $2.95 for a perfect match. Another option is to go to
    your local craft store (Michaels, AC Moore) with your color sample and look in the paint department
    where you will find little 2fl. oz. plastic bottles of acrylic paint in every color and shade that you could
    imagine, for about one dollar. Just take a look at the before and after shots of the DeNight and you
    be the judge.

    RE: DeNight Special 50 ARF by Hangar 9

    ASSEMBLY - LANDINGGEAR&WHEELPANTS

    Now that we are all color-coordinated we can start the build. The manual, Hangar 9 is known for totally
    complete and extensive instructions, starts with the landing gear. The individual, labeled parts bags are
    nice and everything is accounted for.First attch the axles to the gear legs, but read the NOTE: with photo
    which explains to align the hex on the base of the axle vertically to the leg so that the wheel pant can be
    installed properly. Then make sure that you file two flat spots for the wheel collars to really grab the axel
    and be sure to use threadlock on the grub screw.

    Place the wheel collars as instructed in the drawing. Obviously, the wheel goes between both wheel
    collars and be sure that the wheel is able to turn freely. Then, the wheel pants just slip on over the
    wheel and axle and is secured with the included 4-40 x 3/8-inch Allen head screw. Again, a drop of
    threadlock (I use Pacer Z-42) insures that the attachment is secure. Those retro pants look GOOD!

    RE: DeNight Special 50 ARF by Hangar 9

    I'm building one as well for a review, and have found that the paint chips and lifts very easily from the landing gear when tightening down the bolts. My H9 Taylorcraft was the same way. Did yours do the same, especially the gear-to-fuse bolts? I'm not over tightening them either. Is it possible that the aluminum is not being prepped correctly for paint? I have never seen paint come off so easily.

    RE: DeNight Special 50 ARF by Hangar 9

    I did get a few chips when I tightened the axle nut andalsofound a few crush marks around the washer
    of the Allen head screws that hold the pant to the gear legs. Around the gear to fuselage mounting bolts,
    I didnot have any chips at all. My Toledo Special and a Nitro Pole Cat gear legs, did just about the same
    as the DeNight.

    You could be correct about the aluminum not being prepared properly before painting, but I believe that it
    is more of a "pressure" issue created by the torque of bolt tightening. Because I usually use locktight for high
    stress areas, I basically tighten to a "FIRM" position and then go just a bit more. This is a "FEEL" type of thing
    and I'm sure that any two of us modelers would do it slightly different.Since I had my can of color-matched paint,
    I just dabbed the few bald spots and that was that.

    Did you get a lot of paint chipping off the gear legs?

    RE: DeNight Special 50 ARF by Hangar 9

    TAILINSTALLATION

    The tail installation is next and starts with the horizontal stabilizer. Put a piece of colored tape on the bottom
    of the stabilizer and both elevators, as you will need to know top from bottom. Once the stabilizer has been
    inserted into the slot in the fuselage, be sure to square left and right from fuse to tip (@ 8 5/8" on each side)
    as well as trailing edge tips to cowl mounting block with astring. Once it's all lined up properly, then mark top
    and bottom along the fuse sides and remove. NOW.....cut the covering 1/8" INSIDE your marks!!
    This leaves an overlap of covering which makes the seam look perfect and still leaves enough raw balsa to
    make a good glue joint.

    RE: DeNight Special 50 ARF by Hangar 9

    Find your parts bag, labeled Rudder & Elevator, and remove the wireelevator joiner. Then scuff
    each short leg with some sandpaper to help the Epoxy form a strong bond. Clean with rubbing
    alcohol and insert the joiner in the rear of the stabilizer slot as shown in the photo. Mix up some
    epoxy{5 minwas good for me, but if you need more time, 30 min is OK} and apply a thinlayer to
    the bare wood, Now insert the horizontal stab in the slot and make sure that it is pushed all the
    way forward and re-check the measurements to make sure it is in the proper position. Any excess
    epoxy can be cleaned up with a paper towel and some rubbing alcohol.

    RE: DeNight Special 50 ARF by Hangar 9

    Make sure the epoxy has set properly on the stab before you start hinging the elevator halves. Everyone
    has their own favorite way to install CA hinges, so go for it. I like to use "T" pins to center each hinge in
    the moving surface (no CA yet!) and then tape some folded waxed paper on each side of the stab
    next to the fuse. This will prevent excess epoxy from gluing the joiner or elevator to the stab.

    Mix up your epoxy and appply it, with a toothpick,to the groove and joiner hole in one elevator half. Then
    slide the elevator onto the joiner while sliding the hinges into their corrresponding slots in the stab. Now,
    allign the elevator tip with the tip of the stab and you got it!OK, now do the other elevator half.Don't
    worry if the hinge gap is very small, because once the epoxy sets on the joiner wire.................it's time to
    CA (I used ZAP thin)all the hinges on both elevator halves! Again, this is just my way of doing it.

    SERVOPREPARATION

    The rudder and elevator servos were a breeze to install as the equipment bay is HUGE.
    The JRDS-821 servos were prepared by installing the rubber grommets and brass bushings.

    TIP: If you have as much trouble as I do with pressing in those little brass bushings
    withyour thumb........here is a neat remedy.Find a little awl and use it to insert
    thebushingsas shown in the photos below.

    ELEVATOR&RUDDERSERVO

    OK, back to the servos. Now, be sure to follow the instructions on page 13 of the Manual, Step 4-7,
    which refers to the type, length & position of the servo arms (3 are included with each servo). Then
    insert both pushrods thru the hole in the center of the firewall and into their respective, pre-installed
    sleeves.

    Prep the pre-drilled servo holes in the tray by screwingone of the servo mountingscrews into
    and back out of each hole. Now add1 or 2 drops of ZAP thin CA to each hole. Place the servos in
    their mounting holes (rudder on the left side and elevator on the right) and secure with the mounting
    screws. Place the bent ends of the pushrods in the servo arm and secure with the provided keepers.

    JRMatchMaker

    Now, since we have been discussing how to prepare servos for installation, I have a neat little
    item for you to look at. It's the JR MatchMaker (JRP915).
    http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...ProdID=JRPA915

    1. This unit is designed to provide ultra -precise centering of up to two servos
    during setup of the control systems, without having to hook up your Tx and Rx.
    2. It allows for the cycling of up to two separate servos at a time at variable speed rates.
    3. It is perfect for finding erratic servo behavior in the cycling mode.

    There are four ports; 1 & 2 are for variable speed servo cycling and 3 & 4 are for servo
    centering and positioning the servo at any point in it's travel. A very handy and convenient
    way to center new servos; (A)right out of the box before preping for installation, (B)for re-
    centering your servos after being installed and hooked up to the control rod and (C) for
    checking the travel of your flying surfaces so that you can manually adjust the neutral
    position which makes trim adjustments on the maiden flight much easier! See, with
    a MatchMaker we have already made your bench work much more accurate and fun,
    right? Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...................Yeahhhhhhhhhhhh hhhhhh!!!!!

    AILERONSERVO&LINKAGE

    The aileron servo and linkage installation is pretty straight forward. Again, follow the instructions
    especially with respect to the proper length of the servo arms. This is your typical "mount the servos
    to the servo cover with the two little hardwood mounting blocks."
    The instructions suggest 30min epoxy,
    but I used, and have used, CA without any issues. The choice is yours.

    Pre-screw your hatch mounting screw holes, then back out the screws and add afew drops of CA
    (ZAP fills the GAP) and you are good to go. The instructions called for two 9" extensions, but I went
    with the (JRPA097) 12" ones as I like a little extra length so receiver placement is not an issue.

    ANOTHERTIP: What is that purple handled, wheelee thing, you ask? Well, it is a "Tracing Wheel"
    and if you have the nerve, go toany fabric store and get yourself one. Then use the wheel to
    make criss-cross marks on any wood or foam surafce that you want to glue or CA. It definately
    makes for a much better bond. Enlarge the third photo from the left, top row, and see the indents.

    COOLINGEXIT

    The cooling exit hole needs to be cut out and you can see the outline of the opening thru the covering
    on the bottom of the fuselage. Cut the covering about 1/4" inside the actual opening and use a trim
    sealing iron to form the covering to the inside of the cutout. It's easier if you make some diagonal
    cuts at each corner of the flap that is left, before you start to seal the covering back.

    MOTOR&ESCINSTALLATION

    The recommended motor is the E-flight Power 46 mated with the E-flight 60Amp ESC. The motor
    mount outer holes need to enlarged to 11/64 of an inch to accommodate the 8-32 x 2 1/4" machine
    screws which attach the standoffs to the blind nuts in the firewall. Then attach the motor mount
    to the motor with the four countersunk maching screws. Don't forget to use some threadlock.

    FIREWALLPREP

    Hangar 9 includes a great little firewall drilling template which identifies the correct holes for
    either electric or glow power. Just pilot drill the proper hole pattern, remove the pattern and
    enlarge the holes to 13/64 of an Inch.

    MOTOR & ESC MOUNTING

    Press fit the four 8-32 blind nuts into place in the back of the firewall, in the holes just drilled.
    Use the standoffs and machine screws to draw the blind nuts into place as the motor mount
    is attached to the firewall. Then Imounted the ESC to the lower portion of the bulkhead with
    velcro, connected the leads to the motor and secured the leads to the standoffs with small
    cable ties.

    COWL, PROP&SPINNER

    I really like the look of the retro cowl with the large cheeks. I justhad to cover the air intake holes
    with some screen patch that Ifound laying around my shop.I really like the look of the screen as
    opposed tojust the large openings, don't you? The cowl has four pre-drilled holes which
    correspond to four mounting blocks,with "T" nuts already installed,attached to the firewall.
    Just line up the cowl holes with the block holes and secure it with the provided hardware.

    Since I'll be using a 13 X 10E prop, from Nitro Hobbyhttp://www.nitroplanes.com/prsp.htmlwhich
    has a thick hub, I needed to use a 2 1/2" spinner with a very thin backplate. I found one in my parts
    box and decided to paint it silver chrome, just to be a little different. BTW, take a good look at those
    composite props at Nitro, made by EMT, as I think they will become very popular due to the beefy
    hub, the power tips and thegoodprice.
