Bouncing Landing Wheel


Just wonderinf if there are consensus in RCG of the least bouncing landing wheel. The choice are foam (dave brown), soft rubber (Dubro 250R) or hard rubber.

I am trying to find the type of wheel that will absort the most shock with out rebounce during landing.

Practice will give you smooth landings. Any wheel will bounce if it compresses enough, wire gear adds to the rebound. In the mean time, you could pick the wheel that is spongy, usually the foam.
