Default Elf hobby outrunner with strange alarm.

So i got myself a Futaba 7c and rx along with a gy401 all for my walkera 36. Been spending today setting this up but i have a big problem i cant seem to fix.

When i connect the battery the and then connect the three wires to the motor i get the alarm below and the esc gets hot and some eratic movements on some of the servos. This is the alarm:

- - - - - - - -

I`ve tried all combinations with those wires and am currently out of ideas. Anyone got any? Appreciate any help on the matter

I think i might have posted this in the wrong section. Sorry about that, i`m norwegian so....

I found out accidently that my throttle is in reverse. Not when i go into throttle curve and move it but i can only get a response from the motor when i move it towards 0.

Anyone know what is going on?

I still can`t figure out how to change direction on the throttle stick and as unlucky as i always am, in an try to fix it myself somehow the flybar paddle hit my gy401 and cracked it`s plastic cover and now it sends the tail servo back and forth all the time. Guess it`s broken.

Anyone?
