Default DX5 pro issue help needed

I bought a Losi Tenacity db pro and hated the transmitter. So I bought a spektrum DX5 pro, because I had other high end spektrum radios the last time I was into this hobby. The issue is, that now since I bound the new transmitter to the receiver in my buggy it drives terrible! It has no brakes, no reverse and it takes off to the right when I try to brake!
Have any of you guys delt with this kinda thing?

I'm no DX5 expert but I'm going to ask the simple question, did you recalibrate the esc after you changed radios?

to add to kistner's post. before you recalibrate the ESC, make sure all the trim knobs are in the neutral position
