Default Problems with motor/ESC/radio setup?

I'm new to electric flight and I have a problem!

I just purchased a Electrify SS-12 speed control & Rimfire motor. I hooked up everything according to directions, motor spins in correct direction, but throttle stick is reversed (on Futaba FGK transmitter). That is, the motor is off when the throttle stick is UP. How do I reverse this?

When I reverse the transmitter switch for throttle direction, the motor doesn't operate (continuous beeps).

Please help!

The solution may be as easy as setting the throttle trim to it's lowest position, then power up your esc with the throttle stick all the way down

If that don't work, reverse the channel switch again

Keep in mind that the ESC needs to initialize to full low throttle, full low trim.
