Make sure you are full low throttle and low trim.

You might even need to extend your bottom throttle end point a bit but the best way would be to search out a manual an see how to set the throttle range on the ESC, some are simple, some are a pita

Arm the motor by moving the left control stick all the
way up. Hold the throttle lever here for the count of 5.
Then, move the stick back down. Now when the stick
is moved up, the propeller will start to turn. The farther
the stick is moved, the faster the propeller will turn.
Found this in a manual.
