Default Fokker d-7 throttle up probs

Bought a new e-flight fokker d-7 it has all e-flight components -250 motor 10 amp esc and 7.4 800 mah battery along with a spectrum ar5100e and dx6i It binds but will not throttle up to full and barely starts at a low speed then dies off if i throttle back real quick then throttle up full it will go faster for a sec then dies again. my battery is fully charged and my trim for throttle is set to 0 Not sure how to fix this is it the esc? Thanks Doug

Glad you figured it out and also glad you posted the solution to the problem. Way to many times the solution isn't posted. This could help someone else.
