Ya, I knew that. Just wondering if he found a solution.

It may be me that you are referring to as I have the em brakes. I havent actually found a solution to either problem. The first was the axle size and the second was the wheel size. Even though they are advertised as 1 3/4' wheels they bind in the wheel well. As far as the axle, it is threaded and too big for the tam struts. The best solution would probably be to turn down the axle by removing the threads and it would probably fit but I kinda gave up on even doing that since the wheels were binding and I didn't want to remove the stock wheel well and make it bigger. Still debating what I am going to do

I just bought the air ones from tam. Very simple and compact setup.

Thanks, for the info. I was hoping these would be a go. I didn't want to deal with air brakes. Todd

I'm not really fond of dealing with air brakes either. I want to avoid it if at all possible. Like I said still contemplating..

I have seen pictures of the putting it in body where the wing spars are at, but I was able to fit mine next to the battery tray where I mounted the valve and servo as well.

Be sure to keep CGing it as you place new components.

I finally got out with a few jets on Friday.

It was a great day with nice temps in the high 70s. We managed to squeeze in some quiet flight time mostly without the nitros, gassers and turbines in the air.
Since I went out to play yesterday, I got the last two Mach 80's done today, and finally got some time to get the first of 3 video's from the basin done.

The nice thing is the balance between the small tank and the added parts on the tires balance pretty well. Only thing is I flew this morning and one of the hubs flew off after stopping...

That sucks. Well at least it came off "After" stopping.

We lost the rubber tire off the rim on the Viperjet. just before takeoff.
We thought it was the ventral fin hitting the ground, but realized the tire was already gone we Harry landed it. . The landing was without incident since the alum rim was still there.

Yea, I was happy it came off after it was slowed down as it skidded for about 4 ft and was able to find the rim. It wouldn't be a happy sight to see something like that off the plane after taking off, that is for sure.
