Henry,
Some of the Q-1’s were modified to larger wheels and it makes them operable on grass which is a good thing in tail draggers.  The tire scrubber brakes are a joke.  I always said that they give you something to do while you’re waiting for the plane to slow down.  I would definitely upgrade your plane to bigger wheels with real brakes.

Dear Quickheads,

I'm finishing up a mostly-complete Q1 project (actually Marc Zeitlin
is doing most of the work) and am interested in the group's opinions
on the suitability of the Q1 plans brake system. It seems a bit
dubious, but does it tend to work well enough in practice? Has anyone
fitted a hydraulic system or any other variant? Do larger wheels ever
make sense?

Thanks!
