Compatable Battery/ESC/Motor/Prop Combo?

Last night I began testing my first quadcopter motors and ran into some trouble when ramping them up.

General rundown of my quadcopter:
I am using an arduino writeMicroseconds() function to send the pwm signal to my escs.

  • RioRand XXD A2212 1000KV Brushless Outrunner Motors
  • 30A Brushless ESCs
  • 1045 Propellars
  • Venom 20C 3S 2100mAh 11.1 LiPO Battery

My problem:
As I ramp up my motors, one-by-one, they stop working at increasing throttle steps. For instance, as I increase throttle, one motor stops spinning at around 10% throttle, then another stops spinning when I get to 30%, then another at 50%. I believe this has something to do with incompatable Battery/ESCs/Motors/props but I'm not sure where to start in determining how to get compatable components.

I tried using, however, most of my parts aren't on that website.

Any advice would be much appreciated!
