Hi Terry, welcome back.
The Airheart "go-cart" brakes you refer to have worked fine on my Q for 21 + years. I have dual "toe" brakes mounted on and above the rudder tubes. I believe there are some pictures in the files section. Toe brakes on this plane works great but like Paul said
it's what you get use to (oh and they are a lot harder to install).🙂
Q200 1808 hrs. Plane flies almost weekly.

Thanks. Yes, N131PS is seasoned. But my habits over 2300 hrs, half inexperimentals , including about 350 in a Dragonfly and lots of tail wheels before that warned me not to try to make new habits on top of. Old ones.
So if anyone’s has put brake pedals atop the rudder tubes, I’ d love to see how.
Also, can I trust the go art disc brakes sand wheels, or might I try some mods there?
This is a great group. I’d like to visit a Q200 dude while home next few weeks in southern Il. I live in Carlyle, by the lake.
Thanks for the suggestions ..

I think it's a personal preference - hand brakes versus toe brakes. I very much like my hand brakes. In addition to the issue Bruce mentioned, I think I get much finer control of the braking action. Perhaps I'm just better with my hands than
If you do go to toe brakes, you should also look at the pivot in the tail (part of the Jim-Bob six pack). That will keep you from over stressing the rudder mounts when you stand on the brakes.
But I agree with Jay, you should fly it the way it is and see if you can get used to it. Paul flew it very successfully for a long time. No need to mess with success.

Talk to Paul Fisher. He has a duel control at his left hand with differential braking. When his tail spring broke, several years ago, he still was able to control his landing with these 2 handles. Pretty important with a tail stagger!
It will be a lot easier to manufacture than crawling under the panel to the front of the fuselage.
