I stand corrected then. Most of my experiences have been with planes that either have the entire trailing edge of the wing being an aileron, or where the ailerons are on the tips of the wings. Most of the planes I have seen crash, are glow conversions to e-flight, where the wing loading is really high, and where they are looking for a way to slow down more before landing.

Most of my airbrake experiences have been on hotliner-type planes, where landing them is a real chore, because they just don't want to come down.

Anyway, I never knew that about non-wingtip reaching ailerons. I'll have to keep that in mind if I ever own a plane that has them.
