I am currently working on building a quadcopter with brushless motors. I decided to try to build the ESCs by myself with some MOSFETs. I am using an Uno as the main controller on the receiving end. Before I started building I want to verify that I will not destroy my motors. What I am thinking on doing is sending a PWM signal to the MOSFETs which would turn each motor on and off in a fashion that would rotate the motor fully. Would this work without destroying the motors? I am using an 11.1v LiPo so there is a fair amount of current flowing. Also, would I need any current limiting resistors or can I just have a dead short through the windings?
