I am curious if someone would be able to tell me if you can get
bi-directional brushless ESC's. I am currently working on a senior
design project. The project includes blimp-like characteristics and I
am looking at brushless DC motors for weight:trust efficiency. I have
searched many forums and sites, but I only seem to find Brushed motor
ESCs that are reversible with respect to changing wires physically. I
assume when I see a picture of a bi-directional ESC with two wires
going to the motor that this would be a brushed motor setup. We need
bi-directional thrust mainly to turn and stop the robot.
Can anyone help guide me in the right direction in finding a
bi-directional ESC for a Brushless motor? Thank you.
