Default RV-10 Brake upgrade

My apologies if this has been asked before but I am trying to decide which path to go down for the brake upgrades:

If you have gone with Berringer did you do their master cylinders as well or use the stock Vans? Same question but if you went with Matco brakes did you use the Vans master cylinders?

If you used the stock master cylinders did everything work ok...are you happy with the install, any grief with plumbing it together?

Nose Wheel ...did you go with Berringer or Matco?

Is it worth having tubeless tires that Berringer does?

Any feed back appreciated

Keith

I think its all about personal preference. I left everything stock except for the front axle. It all works fine

Don’t listen to Charlie. Go full Beringer. It’s the best.

Don't listen to Tim, he has more money then brains 😁

On another note, I'm happy with Matcos wheels and brakes with the stock master cylinders.

The stock brakes are fine but you can have brake fad if you lay on them hard. If you plan to just land at airports that have lots of asphalt stock brakes are not an issue. If you plan to land on something restricted, you will want to go with the after market brakes. Either brand is fine.

Is it easy to add the Beringers later after the aircraft is complete?

Rick, its not bad----BUT be advised that Beringer uses metric Banjo fittings, instead of standard hardware. They are made in France, so--
If you do decide at a later time to change things, you wont use the stock nylon hoses with banjo hose ends.
On the calipers, they mount different than the Matco or Grove, so you'll be doing a full upgrade.

After seeing the price difference between matco and Beringer......I think matco it will be. Somehow my brain is holding on to my money!
Thanks for the feedback!

Stock brakes are fine. I can get the plane stopped in 880ft.
