Nylaflo brake lines work just fine. RVs have been using them for decades.

I do NOT recommend using them all the way to the caliper, especially on the "A" models. The brakes on "A" models sometimes get pretty hot because many people over-use them for steering. A little prop blast on the rudder will usually turn the airplane just fine. I typically use solid lines down the gear leg to the caliper.

As always YMMV.
