I built mine per the revised plan with the single handbrake. I know I can't do differential braking. Is that going to be a very big deal? I mounted the master cylinder to the pilot's side of the left console, bolts floxed through phenolic, because my left console is a fuel tank extension, like my other consoles. what if I put a selector valve near the master solenoid/brake lever where I choose L/BOTH/R brakes?

I think it’s a matter of personal preference based on whether you have toe brakes or finger brakes already installed And are flying with them. As a practical matter, toe brake cylinders are much harder to install and service and I think that deters a lot of people. I love having toe brakes so my hands are free for other things. To each his own!
Also as Paul stated, if the tail rod brakes you still have total control of the rudders and brakes with our Jim/Bob bellcrank modification.

All true. The pivot in the tail cone splits to separate the rudder from the tail wheel. Great control results from that mod!
