Using a Brushless motor that uses an ESC with an arduino uno

Hello, I have never worked with arduinos before and I need to be able to control a castle brushless motor that is hooked up to a sidewinder 3 ESC that to my knowledge only accepts radio transmission. Could anyone guide me on how to begin this project?

You will find a tutorial if you do a Google search on the title of your post;

"Using a Brushless motor that uses an ESC with an arduino uno"

ESCs don't use radio transmissions at all. They are driven by PWM signals like those used for servos. These sometimes come from RC receivers but can just as easily come from an Arduino.

If you look at the Servo/Knob sketch that comes with the IDE that will work to control a motor and ESC once you have everything connected correctly.
