Default Sidewinder 5700kv Setup Problem

Hey guys, just got a Sidewinder 5700kv ESC/Motor setup. However, I cant seem to get it setup. I have a Spektrum DX2 and a Spektrum SR3000RX. When I hold throttle and turn on the ESC it blinks green, and then makes noises, and starts blinking red. I go to full brake and it just keeps blinking red and never goes to yellow for neutral setup. Any ideas? ESC plugged into Throttle on RX, dean's to battery and white/white, red/red, and black/black for motor to ESC. Help please

Got it to setup, not sure why but on my Spektrum DX2 I had to increase my throttle/brake range from 100 -> 120 in order for it to setup properly. I got it to setup properly now, adjusting the tuning now.

Most likely you need to turn up the brake on your controller, the setting isn't high enough for the esc to recognize it's being applied.
