Are you going to attempt to recreate the crazy "flaps mit dive brakes" as on your full-sized ship?

Agree that the scale working flaps & brakes would be challenging... but there is one way of doing it, see first pic below. It has been shamelessly ripped from old classic Radio Control Soaring by Dave Hughes from circa 1977. I have read this great book almost to shreds... 'my first rc book'..

That (fig. 99) implementation is rather easy. Just do not use it in planes which are fast... Only slow floaters.
