Excuse me "there is only one in charge at a time" - and usually
flaps, gear, power is set by the one pilot who "has the plane" - of course this pilot can ask for assistance (especially if the damn gear handle is half way across the console) Trust me - over 7k hours I should know....
I do agree - if asked to hit manual brakes its hard if not mounted in front of a "co-pilot" - still I don't see any problems driving with one hand and modulating brakes with the other - no way I wan't someone "pressing full manual" on me...
No if you had "Detents" or "Positions" such as a set of Flaps....

to manually modulate the brakes on the trailer - in such conditions I don't want ANYONE ELSE
touching that controller....
