    Brushless ESC question for hovercrafts

    I'd like to go backwards.

    Currently, I have no issues, except for that. I'm using a Great Planes Rimfire 300 and compatible ESC, but it has no reverse function.

    My question is, can I use a car ESC with a reverse function along with my current motor, or would I have to replace the motor as well?

    I was thinking something like this: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idproduct=7189

    RE: Brushless ESC question for hovercrafts

    Nope, should work fine with your motor as long as it carries enough current for your motor.

    Edit to add:
    I looked up your motor it should work. depending upon the plug setup for the receiver connection.

    Just one thought...
    Unless you are using a separate controller for you lift fan/blower when you reverse thrust it will slam your hovercraft into the ground.
