    If you nose gear spring is contributing to the bounce effect it could be that you have the C of G too far forward, i.e. to much weight on the nose and it drops when you land, you should be able to...

    It won't bounce or porpoise on landing if you use crow braking, over 60degs of flap (air-brake) and 7/9mm up aileron, the reflex on the ailerons reduce lift and help prevent the tips of the wings...

    Not that there is anything wrong with the HS645, but they are analog servo's if that is the number on them, I think the latest digital servo's are HS5645's, if they are old it may be worth checking...

    Just a thought on the bouncing, it may be that the wing is still producing lift at landing speed and the bounce is the result of the wing still trying to fly, if you reflex (up about 5mm) the...

    What make you say it does not need crow, if it floats with flap then crow may stop that, they act as spoilers whilst giving wash out to the wing, surprising how well most jets will descend under...

    If you don't have brakes to apply, try putting a bit of fuel tubing on either side of the wheel to provide some friction without causing a lot of drag on landing or the take off roll.

    You don't have to use Festo caps, just heat a bit of fuel tubing and squeeze it flat on one end and put the other end in the existing Festo.

    As Matt has said, JetCat's are designed to be swapped around from airframe to airframe they even sell an installation kit for that very purpose.
