esc has an arming safety feature built in where it will not arm unless it sees a low throttle condition at beginning. Low throttle is 1ms high pulse and full throttle is 2ms high pulse. Power up esc sending it a 1ms pulse (sometimes less) and wait 5 seconds and then gradually increase pulse width to start motor. After getting it going you can decrease the wait time to see how long it actually takes your particular esc to initialize. Most of the time you hear battery cells counted out in beeps and then a long beep indicating esc is armed then you can increase pwm.
