Default Flyzone Calypso ESC help

I have only flown Gas or glow for years. I went over to the dark-side and thus here I am! I purchased a Flyzone Calypso and on the 5th flight the ESC failed at 100' or so resulting in a bent plane and dead ESC. Fixed the plane with a new Fuselage from Tower and was installing the motor when I realized the wires are not marked or coded on the ESC side, All three wires are black coming out of the ESC.......can't find any help on the web or the directions.

Just plug them in, any order. Power up; if the motor spins the correct direction you are good to go. If not just interchange any two of the wires and the motor will turn in the correct direction.
