Exactly ;-)

I am adding brakes because this is my second Electra and this one gets everything I want in a perfect Electra. In this case, aluminum wheels (bling) and air retracts with Durostruts (half "looks" and half durability), brakes (for short runways or just "late" landings, call it piece of mind) and high voltage servos and a DSMx RX. I'm also making the wings secure without the need for the belly pan and the stabs removable from the underside (without removal of the thrust tube) but I wouldn't recommend that to anyone not familiar with the Electra and comfortable breaking from the manual...
