Torque 4016 500kv "squeal"

I've got an EF torque 4016 500kv motor and Airboss esc that is giving me an issue with quick throttle movement. The motor will "squeal" for lack of a better term. I believe I need to check the settings in the esc and the timing. Does anyone have the recommended settings so I can verify they are right?
Thanks!!

If you'll follow the included directions and do a factory default re-set the squealing should go away.

Bought the setup used and didn't receive them. I'll look them up and go through that process.

Try reflowing the solder on the bullet connectors, sounds like an intermittent connection causing you to lose a phase.
