Default RE: aircraft wheel brakes

The problem with O ring brakes is they only push out in the area of the piston so the braking effect is only in two or maybe four places around the wheel, have a look at the Digitech brakes they are a bladder which pushes a plate onto a disc of brake material inside the wheel, only perceived problem is that your wheel could be pushed off it not fitted correctly.
