Default ESC question

what kind of transmitter can I use to lock the reversable ESC to breaking only? (if I buy the forward only ESC, I can't go reverse) so I am just asking which transmitter is the cheapest that I can lock the reverse and is all the ESC reversable ESC can lock the reverse? which one can? what's the cheapest one?
thx

It doesn't work that way for most ESCs. Reason is, the Brake and Reverse come from the same signal in the radio. So if you disable the Reverse, you disable the brakes. Any radio that has Throttle End Points could do this. But Again, It won't work like you've requested. Reverse disable has to be a feature of the ESC.

Thanks
