My GWS ESC 25A not arming

I connected my GWS ESCs (25A) to my Hobby King board and tried increase the throttle but the ESCs just beep every 3 secs. I tried it with a Ardupilot System and it doesn't get armed also.
What might be the problem?

Probably some of the connectors and leads were not soldered well, might have been from your Hobby King board. But I have no idea about what Hobby King board you mentioned. Normally an ESC is desgined to connect with motor, receiver and battery.

I use 'HobbyKing Multi-Rotor Control Board V2.1 (Atmega168PA)'. Its a stabilization board. I want to use this setup for my Quad board.

Suggest plugging this ESC with one motor, battery and receiver, forget the control board at this moment, to see if it works correctly for you. If so, probably the board itself was in trouble, or you have to refer to the board's manual again.
