Bill (et al), 
I forget now where I saw it, but a local ham 'fixed' his brake button such that 
he could not release the brake before releasing the left/right buttons.  He 
drilled and countersunk a hole for a screw in the brake button, and attached 
a piece of steel metal strip 2" x 0.75".  He can now press the brake and left 
or right buttons without worrying about the brake button being released 
before the left or right buttons.  

The icing on the cake to protect the rotor/array is the addition of a brake 
delay device to prevent the brake being set too soon after the left/right 
button is released.
