Default ESC problem, plz help!

Ok I have an Ultrafly Ultimate Biplane with a B/10 brushless motor. I have just recently bought an Electrifly Silver Series SS-35 ESC and everytime I hook the battery to it all it does is beep constatly and I can't get the motor to run. The instructions say something about setting the break it is supposed to beep twice but this is not what it is doing This is a constant beep and it doesn't stop beeping. Well I also did some searching and I read that to arm the ESC you must first move the throttle all the way up then all the way back down? But the instructions does not say to do this. I have tried that and all it does is just set there and beep. Can someone that has this speed control and know what my problem is please tell me what to do. The instructions should be more clear because it does not say a single thing what a constant beeping means and I am confused.

I really hope someone can help I wanna get some flights soon.

Thank you

Don't plug in the battery, turn on the TX, set the throttle all the way down w/ no trim, then plug in the battery or turn on the ESC/Receiver, however yours is set up. Then when it beeps move the stick all the way up, then all the way back down. If that does not work, try it the other way around, start all the way up, then go all the way down.

Got it working finally. I had to buy a deans female end for my battery and there are no local hobby stores so it took me a while but the problem was with my radio.

for everyone who cant figure out how to get it to work, try messing with your end adj. and throw rates and trim settings. also reversing ect.... after lots of programming my friend got mine working and its hauls! i got a bigger prop on it now and i cant wait to fly.

it does have a safty thing where you have to move the throttle all the way up and then back down to arm the ESC like you said.

thanks for the help, happy flying!
