You can buy the ratchet springs for most makes of transmitter, you just take off the spring and screw the ratchet in place.

A good start would be a model shop which sells RC gear. I prefer ratchets on the throttle, and I had one radio converted to ratchets on both sticks so I could use tank steering (two motors with separate ESCs) on a couple of my boats. The owner of the model shop where I bought the radio did it for me free, although it's not hard to do yourself.

As Peter said, try a model shop. I think I got mine from SHG at one of the shows I visited, cost me all of 50 pence.
