Thundebird 18

Who: CC T-bird 18 paired with a Himax HC2212-1180 and a 8x5 folder
What: Cannot get the brake to work no matter how many times I've set the parameter in programming mode (using the throttle as I do not have a Castle Link)
When: every time, all the time
Where: Everywhere
Why: Was hoping you could tell me in order to remedy this issue.

This setup is installed in a Multiplex Merlin. When I stall the aircraft in order to stop the prop from rotating, this thing will glide forever. When I cut throttle, the brake does not work and the prop continues to rotate which slows this aircraft down, defeats the glider aspect.

I'm stationed in Europe and headed to a meet on Friday, would like to have this issue resolved by then with your assistance. Thanks.

6 Days and no answer, you'd think that if the answer is already here that someone would've at least pointed me to it. Maybe my low post count mistakenly identifies me as a noob.
Had better expectations than this.
