I'm looking into building my own drone using a microcontroller, I want to use a brushless motor. I know you need a motor driver (controller) to control motors, but for brushless motors I had electronic speed controllers (ESC) come up in my research.
1.What is the difference between an ESC and a brushless motor controller?
2.How would they connect with my microcontroller?
3. Are they both capable of running the motor in the oposite rotation?
Here is the ESC I looked at:
