Thanks all. I'm assuming the ESC I got is suppo too since there is no markings on it at all and it looks like one from their website. I tried to program it with the website instructions but when I turned it on at full throttle it just kept beeping, it didn't "sound like it went into programming mode".

Try dialing down your throttle down to zero. Happens to me a lot.

Futaba transmitters have to have their throttle channel reversed.

Some well-structured reading and handy e-tools for rainy/windy days. Will save you, and us , a lot of questions. Notably the 'what went wrong?' kind of questions
Will also prevent you from burning up several controllers and/or motors and/or battery:
E-flight primer and tools

And please, do your RC equipment, wallet, ego, battery, controller, motor, house/garage/car a big favour ... get a watt-meter. It will more than pay for itself, will save you at least one fried motor and one fried controller. Will also help you finding the best setup.

Send an email to product support @ Horizon.
I checked with James on Chat, and that was his suggestion.
