Troubles with Spektrum/HackerA60/120A ESC

Hey guys,
Having some trouble with getting my rig setup.

Configuration is:
TX - Spektrum DX9 (Using new model/airplane mode)
RX - AR8010T
Motors - 1x Hacker A60-22S Brushless and 2x Hacker A60-7XS Brushless
ESC - 3 x Aerostar 120A Opto ESC
BEC - Castle Pro CC-BEC 20amp peak
Servos - 3x HiTec hi-torque
Power - 4x 6s 2x 3s lipos

Get all 3 motors powered up and introduce mixing with motors and servos on the radio.

Can't seem to get the motors to spin. Trying 1 at a time, connecting Motor>ESC>BEC>RX<Power
I hear the cell count sound from the motor, the good tone sound and then try to spin them up and am having no joy with spin up.

Binding is good because I can get servos to move.
Power is good because everything shows sign of power and batteries are all charged up.

Anyone have experience running this kind of configuration (big hackers, big escs, big power?)

Can anyone share a test protocol to confirm the esc's are working correctly?
thanks in advance.

Test suggestion
Try without radio: one servotester (powered by 5V, BEC) + battery + only one (motor+ESC)

Unfortunately I don't have a servo tester, but will look into getting one.
