Very Hot ESC

I just finished building my first HK-450 im using a Turningy X500-4000 motor and a hobbyking 30 amp ESC... when I give it power for even a quick second it gets extreamly hot... im new to RC especially heli's could this be due to the throttle curve

I noticed most of the users of that motor in the HC review section are using 40A ESC's. Maybe a 30A isn't big enough.
