    Tango Cub Brake system

    Hello all, I am looking for pictures and/or instructions for the assembly of a tango Cub brake system. its not in the Univair parts book, or iin the maintenance manual. I was given a project plane that was disassembled 2.5 years ago and no one remembers how it went together. any help would be appreciated.

    Robbie Grove has a Tango Cub that actually works. Not sure that any of the others are all that great, so he may have setup suggestions.
    My suggestion is convert to heel brakes. Grove has really good masters.
    Thanks kevinbarton1 thanked for this post

    Thank you those are exactly what I needed. I kind of figured that is how it would end up looking but the pictures confirm. Thank you very much. It looks like the cables rub on the interior panels, is that the case?

    Beautiful, thank you. Next question, can you take a close picture of the flap lever? that configuration looks different than what we have. It actually looks better.

    Some more pictures here. There can be an issue if you added flaps with the rear brakes.
