Can it stop a 24 lb Electric F-15.

If so maybe you have a worth while product.

a few questions...
1) Where to purchase?
2) How much?
3) Adaptable to other wheel/tire sizes?
4) Other whel/tire sizes available?
5) How heavy is the model in the video?

I fly large EDFs and brakes would be nice. I normaly use BVM stuff which is a little pricey. So there is a big difference from stopping a 4 lb foamy and 24 lb EDF.

I am finally getting some experience with brakes from the Tamjets system in my Electra. They are great but I won't miss air operated stuff at all!

Please post some vendors, or a website that sell this product. My 90mm F16 could use some brakes!
Thanks

Preferably in English

Sorry

Sorry but your post just seemed a bit condescending to the little guys…and I never said my sky ray was a foamy..It’s a kit with a fiberglass fuse and built up balsa wings. Maybe even more work than your heavy jet if it was an ARF…My guess is what they have posted wasnt made for larger jets..but they may have that later if we like what they make..and dont give them a lot of grief at first..

Sorry wasn’t trying to be condescending, I do not use brakes on my smaller jets, and I did not mean to insult your jet. It appeared that the jet in the video was a foamy.

The way I see it is that any brakes are better than none at all. But if your looking to replace some air actuated brakes then you're probably looking for something that offers similar or better braking performance.
