esc won't work on the throttle channel

I have a Futaba 6 ch computer radio. My problem is that my esc wont work on the throttle channel. The transmitter is working becauce I can put, say, ailerons on that channel and it will control them. Also I can put the esc on my flap channel and control the motor with the rotary knob. The esc is a GWS ics 300 and gws naro 6ch R6N reciever. Really dont want to fly with my flap knob....lol

Thanks

Two things to try.

Does a servo work if plugged into the throttle channel?

Try reserving the throttle channel.

Do you have end point adjustments etc set for the throttle channel ? Make sure it's able to return to a true minimum otherwise the ESC will not arm.

I had the same problem with a GWS T6AII Transmitter (JR/AIRTRONICS), R6N, ICS-300. (Funny to have this problem with all GWS components).

I'm building my first plane and this thread really saved me time and frusteration. Other first timers: Just flip the reversal switch on channel 1 and the problem should be solved.

Thanks a million!
