Controlling Brushless Motor through ESC using Arduino

I have a brushless motor and ESC, which I'm trying to control using an Arduino Uno for my first quadrotor project. And I'm failing miserably, which is why I'm here. I tried connecting the Arduino to the ESC and using the Servo library, but it didn't work. I even tried sending 10 pulses of width 1ms, with an interval of 20ms, but that didn't work either. All I get are three continuous short beeps on power and then short single beeps. I'm probably not able to even arm the ESC. This is the motor I'm using(Emax CF2822): This is the Red Brick ESC's manual(Mine's the 20Amp Aircraft one, with Ni-MH and LiPo Auto-detect. Table 1.1): It's meant for an RC receiver and I have no idea how I can emulate one through my Arduino. All in all, I'm totally blank. If anybody could please help, I'd be real grateful. It'd be great if I could get the Arduino code also.

Thanks a lot.
