I have 2 settings for my brakes: light and extreme and both cause the plane to pitch up. I just simply mixed some elevator down with them.
It slows down so much I even elevator it vertically to land. Just once to try it. It is heavy plane especially with 5000mAh, but it worked.
Most of the time I use the brakes on final approach to bleed the speed, but I release them right above the ground to gain full rudder control.
