Durafly Tundra - can't get it going

Hello Jolly Enthusiasts!

Just got my new Tundra assembled, and anxious to fly.

Only problem is the motor doesn't do anything. I have my receiver hooked up and bound - flaps, ailerons, rudder, etc. all control just fine. But throttle does absolutely nothing.

Unplugged/replugged battery several times, tried different batteries, have done the "throttle calibration steps" (put throttle all the way up, power system, put throttle back down) a number of times, etc. The motor simply gets no power.

When I power the plan, the esc (Aerostar 40a) makes three beeps of the same tone, then two quick beeps of different tones. I can find no documentation about what that means.

Help!

    ... seems the problem may be that my transmitter is bad, for just the throttle... will update again when that's figured out one way or another.

    What transmitter and receiver have you got?

    Plug a servo into the receiver throttle channel with ESC into any 'spare' channel to power the receiver up. See if throttle stick makes the servo move. If not, try in other channels until it does. Make sure prop is OFF the motor!
