There are ways of making your own.##'###
Better of buying some from E-Bay Item number :- 230837016803 320 Amp For Brushed motors or Item Number :- 180582675073 30 Amp for Brushless motors.

Regards Hargard.
Brushless escs are the same electronically for forward and reverse, a brushless esc only changes the order of the motor drive pulses to change direction.

There are plenty of cheap escs with reverse now, check out the Hobbyking car and boat escs, 30 amp for $15, a bit more than a plane esc of equivalent rating but for $15 its not worth the hassle.

This one works exactly as you want (with no brake) straight out of the box
