Default Mibo A-10 6.0 owners. How the new brake system working

Hi fellows
Could any of you with the latest version explain the new system and how it's working for you. Unfortunately on past versions including the 5.5, as I own, the braking was very questionable (from going from the electric to modified air system I went to). Hope to hear more than just Oli's comments on this please.
Still waiting for Oli's version to come out on this.
Thanks

I’m waiting on my Gen 6, but I suspect it will be a while before I get some real time stick time on it.

Thanks Rav I'm sure you will enjoy. With the refinements from the 5.5 it's only got better.

So to bring this to full circle. The new electronic braking lacks a bit to be desired. It can't quite stop this big bird after touchdown even after 200-300 ft.

Hi Rav,
Did you set the brakes up to instructions?? Mine are working perfectly fine and I am able to stop the plane in very short distance.

This are the instructions that MIBO send me.
​​​When you set the brakes up to this, they should work perfectly fine.

Thanks for that.

I never got that.

But it seems I may have to adjust an allen screw somewhere?

You can see here how one side of the brake actuator is missing brake pad material. I found some extra brake looking stuff from my RC car stuff and made the magic happen. The brakes worked incredible after putting the new brake material on.

Adjustment is made through this opening (see photo). On your photo is this hole behind strut.

Thank you sir! Yes, I found it.

Adjusting that screw was useless on this side with the missing brake material.

I saw a week long battle with these brakes at Best in the West.

My son and I fought that battle. We arrived at a truce with our set of brakes that allowed us to land our Gen 5.5 on BITW's luxurious 3000 foot runway.

The problem with our brakes was that the Hitec HS-35's they came with fell apart while being tested before we maddened our A-10. Hitec stopped making these servos a decade ago so we tried a Blue Bird micro servo with similar dimensions. Unfortunately the servo's spline was too loose for the eccentric cam that closes the brakes. I reached out to Bogo right after BITW (early Oct), he said he would see what he could do but he hasn't found a solution. Last month he told me COVID has ground his operation to a standstill.
