Hangar 9 69.5" Toledo Special

I love my Taylorcraft, but I wanted something a little larger. I love my Monocoupe, but it will not fit in my truck without taking the wings off, which means I can't make a "quick" run to the field. Hopefully the Toledo Special is the solution. It's about the biggest wingspan I can put in the bed in one piece.

Modifications from the instructions include: Oak standoffs(that replace the stock metal ones) to move the motor away from the firewall an additional 15mm since the Turnigy is shorter than the Power 46. I cut a hole in the underside of the cowl for an air inlet. I left the port rear window out for air exhaust. I added 1/2oz of lead to the tail to get it to balance with the huge battery. I also put regular socket head cap screws on the wing instead of the nylon bolts.

I recently picked up the Hangar 9 40 size floats, this is my first float plane. I really like flying from water.

AUW Land: 6lbs 10oz.
AUW Water: 8lbs 5oz.

Static test:
1200 watts with a 14x8 prop
900 watts with a 13x8 prop (what I use)
