Esc will not arm, 3gx compact

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have a 3gx compact I've installed on a Blade 450x, the electronics on the bird is the stock eflite esc and motor, align ds415m servos on cyclic and a JR DS3400g for the tail.

My issue is the esc will not arm, has anyone else had this problem? I have read quite a few related issues with other esc's not arming and the fix was to set throttle end points, however I'm not aware of being able to do that with the stock eflite esc.

The esc will arm when I plug it into a separate receiver, and there is signal coming out of throttle channel of the 3gx when powered up (I connected an extra servo to check that). I did try setting the throttle end points as per the instructions for the 3gx so I'm at a loss. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
