Default brake issues with Futaba 3PK

Hello,
i have a AE rc18r stock ESC with brake function.
so first time back will brake , neutral position, next time back will reverse, as usual.
but with my Futaba 3PK , i cant do that. first time a push back it will brake then without me releasing the trigger , it will reverse , without going to neutral position. i also have a novak micro esc that tought it was damaged , cause first time i brake would simply reverse motor , but now i think its a radio thing, since both ESC are doing the same.
Any help setting brakes for normal usage ?

Did You calibrate the Radio to the Speedo? It sounds more like a setting in the speedo than the radio, usually a delay setting for brakes, before going into reverse, go to Team Novak site and download the instructions for your speedo.
