Default TS Flightlines brake lines

Has anyone installed TS Flightlines brake line hoses from the bottom of the fuse to the brake caliper. If you did, could you tell me how you installed them on your -10 and/or send or post some pics for me

Thanks

I have them on my -7A (now flying) but not sure that will help you.

Default Got them installed

I very muck like the braided lines. To my liking they are a little too long. About 1.5-2 inches shorter would be better (have not measured). Securing them to the front of gear leg all the way down, they end up with a loop going forward at the bottom that I think puts strain on the hose and caliper connection. I had to enlarge the hole in the wheel spat to accommodate the loop. It is still all inside the lower intersection fairing though but only just.

Install them just like the aluminum ones in the plans.

WE make ours 31.5 inches long straight and straight; straight and 90* for the Matco calipers using a straight 816 nipple in the caliper to clear the pants bracket. WE dont wrap the hose around the axle like the aluminum tube in the plans call for. The extra (little) slack at the front of the axle allows the caliper to move without binding.

We do this type of install on most all RV models. Yep some builders like the long hose version to wrap around the axles, and we can certainly do that. There are ALOT of RV's flying with our standard package and no issues. WE have a few here at 3J1 that I monitor.

That's how I did mine. Straight down the leg and then to the fitting on the caliper -- no loop.

Yep, straight down the leg and right to the Matco caliper.

Thanks Tom!

Awesome service, as usual!

It took me a while to get the picture up on my site #hostingproblems. But now that it's there, I hope this is useful. Since the lines are flexible, you don't need the loop. Enough slack at both ends for flexing. Nicely made hoses; I would do this again in a heartbeat.
