Arrow Brrakes, How To?

There's no forum for 3.5 so I'll ask here.
Does anyone know how to set up the brakes on an aircraft?

I want to keep the flaps on Channel 5, and use the smoke servo for the brakes.
It seems there are no other options than the smoke servo since my transmitter is 9 channel, and the software lists 5 channels.

Thanks for any help

not at my pc so this is from memory..........
in a nut shell......
make sure you have "Advanced Properties" option checked
in the Aircraft editor
open the +main Gear
click on "wheels"
"add" brakes(if not already done)
set degree (stopping %)
assign a servo (smoke or whatever)
repeat for nose or tail wheel

hint:set main gear's brake pressure higher than the nose wheel to prevent cartwheeling
or vive versa for a tail dragger
