Default ESC Forward/Reverse

Hey All,
Any help with this would be awesome ... I'm not necessarily looking to fly 4-D but want to have short landing and reverse on the ground for handling.

I'm using a MGM-Compro 2560 Z-Series ... which is a car/boat ESC and therefore has a reverse capability.

Is there a way to set up the radio so that a "Neutral" Throttle setting is the lowest point in one switch setting and once the switch is flipped, the reverse throttle curve is active?

Hopefully that makes sense. I basically don't want to try flying with the throttle in the neutral position ...

I never tried it, but you may be able to do it with a heli radio. With a heli radio, you can program different throttle & pitch curves for different flight modes. For normal mode, you'd program the throttle to go from 50% to 100%, and in "reverse" mode, you'd program the throttle to go between 0% and 50%.
