Black Max Brakes

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys just wondering what your opinions are on the black max brakes, i am looking at purchasing the bx1320 kit for a seaplane, what would you think the sealing would be like on the bearings as I am concerned about seizing of the wheel due to corrosion from salt water.

 

Also what is the holding force like for a rotax 912 100hp for full power engine runs

 

Thank You your opinions are appreciated

I fitted a full set of hubs brakes and bearings to my Xair Hanuman, can't comment on the water side of things but hub bearings are not sealed against water ingress.

 

Also in my opinion bearings should have spacer fitted between bearings in hub.

 

A good kit for the cost but there is room for improvement .

Thanks for your feed back, it's very much appreciated. Do you find the brakes to be sufficient to hold the aircraft on full power ?
