Default First ever kit build needs help

As the title says this is my first ever kit build. Actually my first build ever. It is Team Losi 22sct 3.0. I have a Tekin RS G2 motor and ESC. My radio is a Spektrum dx5c. I have successfully paired it and programmed it for normal operation. However I have no brakes. When I go from throttle to the reverse position I have absolutely no stopping power. I cannot figure out how to program braking into the ESC. When I go from reverse to Full Throttle it immediately engages forward and brakes. Can anyone help me with this? I have tried to look online but can't seem to find what I'm looking for.

Sounds like you need to "calibrate" the ESC to your radio per the instructions included with the ESC. Some brands of ESC's require the throttle channel reversed as well. Read the instructions very carefully, good luck!
