Angry Wiring Problems

Hi

I'm new to model aircraft and I decided to build my own (probably a bad idea)

I purchased a Hobbyking GT2 2CH controller, 3CH GT2 receiver, Turnigy Park250 2200kv brushless, Turnigy 2 cell 800mah LiPo and a Turnigy 10 amp ESC.

I hooked the motor, battery, receiver and ESC together.
When I tried the throttle nothing happened.

My ESC has BEC so the receiver did have power.

If I hook a servo up to ch2 it's responsive
But I can't get my motor to spin

Thanks

Try reversing throttle channel on transmitter. If that doesnt work make sure throttle trim is all the way down. Those could keep the esc from arming the throttle/ motor.

Also try changing 2 of the 3 wires going to the motor from esc. Just unplug any 2 and plug them in the opposite plugs.

My intentions are to build a high speed plane
I have designed a swept back wing with a special wing tip.
The motor is mounted backwards towards the tail planes
Two propellers are mounted in the leading edge of the plane driven by a single motor through a gear system.
The reason why the props are mounted in the tail planes is because the air at the front of the main wings is turbulent thus by mounting behind the wing the air is cleaner.
