Re: First air-to-air shots of N8WQ

    I like my braided hoses at the caliper interface, helps to provide a heat break and you get a sparkly look. :-) 

    From experiments on the old pipes when they were changed, it is usually some damage from abrasion that leads to failure.

    Should have done them at the pedal end as well, that's an upgrade for the future.

Replaced both sides at wheel pant only, I think. May have switched to s/s braided there.

Jim,
Did Brad update the tubing or just replace what is there?

Thanks

Hey Jay, Jerry and Mike,

You can add Brad Olsen (Tom Moore’s Q originally)to that list. NF tubing failed in the wheel pant near the disc. He locked up the other brake and did a 360. No damage. Quick repair and he was flying again.

Hi Mike and Rich,

 

We just discussed two cases of the nylaflow tubing failing. One was last week, Ray McCrea’s long EZ and the other was Jim Patillo’s Q200 a few years ago.

 

Cheers,

Jay

Hi Rich,

It doesn't sound like there have been any nylaflow tubing breaks.

I'm still running my 35 year old stuff with 1400 hours on it with no issues.  I took a piece of the leftover 35 year old stuff and tried to break it with no luck, it seemed pretty good.  I do a brake pressure test each time before landing so if it fails in flight I'll know that I'm landing with no brakes and can plan for that.

Fly Safe.

     Hi Guys,

     So where have the pipe ruptures been just for interest.

     Are they mainly are the caliper end due to heat ?
