is the ESC a Brushless Type ? if not it wont work with your brushless motor. if it is OK you need to do the transmitter program with the ESC and Motor with power on. also the lipo is way to big for a micro model , go for something no larger than 350mah / 2 cell. the 3 wires from motor to esc can go any way , if your prop is turning the wrong direction just swap over 2 wires.
