Have to side with Q ....

IMHO ... forget flaps ... they are intended to increase lift at slow speed ... not as brakes.

If you want to land at steeper angle and not keep floating on ... then spoilers are the answer ... and you only need a small angle up ... you can program ailerons if separate channels to both UP to create spoilerons .... my Edge 540 racer has this.

To create brakes .... then you only need small surface area and as Q says try to make so not to interfere with elevator or other control surfaces.

Look at military jets and the air-brakes .... see how small they are and where located...
