I read that the first thing to do is to reinforce the main LG area of the wings.
The CMP models tend to have the built up wing too weak and even on take off can rip the upper planking.
I'm planning to add more shear webs and fiber glassing. Maybe some CF tape would help too.

Confusing:

But the latter 2 include braking system?

I thought it was only for 70mm wheels!

This is cool man!

They have wheels with brakes that you can use at a later stage if your runways are not long enough. Mine is almost 200m long. Jets fly there with no probs. So I wont need them most probably. What I wanted for coolness is to use some landing lights. The wing tips sure may allow this
Anyway I just wish I can install the struts that I have. I will receive my plane last because I got the metal retract mechanisms only that are in backorder now

We have a long runway aka parking lot, but this planes came hot! Like my 70mm Viper. She never stopped until hitting the curb.

Brakes will be an extra insurance.
