Default Make Your own Brushless ESC?

Does anyone know where to find a schematic for one of these circuit boards?

I would like to make my own. Has anyone tried to do this or IS doing this?

Here's some info on specifically modifying CDrom Motors for use as RC powerplants:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...hreadid=140736
www.gobrushless.com is a good place for info/ parts.
I was looking for info on a home made brushless controller also,
a home made controller is WAY more complex/complicated than a home made motor,
at the end of the day, it's more costly than the $50 you'd spend on something like a castle creations pheonix 10 or 25.
here's a link to the only DIY brushless Controller that I've been able to find.

I found an inrunner from an old TV antenna that could be rotated, it had only 1 coil and needs only an AC current to work, no ESCs.( It was very powerful too. Couldn't stop with my hand. Id say that translates into a lot of RPM if i use a cogwheel) maybe u could do something like that?
