Brushless conversion motor problem

I did 2 conversions and both have the same problem. After flipping the arm switch the motors spin but don’t respond to throttle input. one setup is an alienwhoop zero, 1s racerstar 4in1 4a esc, and betafpv 0802se motors. the other is an alienwhoop zero, 2s 20a 4in1 esc, 5v step down, and 1103 racerstar motors. I selected brushless conversion in config.h, changed the pids, double checked all the dshots, and turned off filtering. im not sure what else to do. any suggestions?
