Carbon z yak 54 problems

Just put together my Carbon z yak and added the electronics . I am having problems with it taking throttle. I move the left stick forward and nothing. All other control surfaces work but the ESC will just beep 3 times and nothing.

Futaba radio 6ex and with 6 channel receiver
tried reversing servo direction
trim set to zero


Any suggestions would be great~!

Thanks

Reverse Channel 3 on your radio, see if that helps.

Because it's a Futaba, the throttle needs to be reversed, then try moving your throttle trim to the lowest position.

REMOVE THE PROP!!!!!

Servo direction was correct and trim settings where set to zero already as stated in the original post.

Turned out to be the EPA settings on the radio, I got it fixed finally.
