This is for a Hobby-weight (5.44 Kg) battle robot.
I bought two ESCs for my drive motors but the ESCs do not have a reverse function (or brake for that matter).
Is there any simple way I can achieve this through maybe either:
The R/C settings (setting middle position of joystick as stopped, top-wards as forward and bottom-wards as reverse?)
Or could I maybe achieve this using Arduino? I have a card with relay switches that I can use with the Arduino so am not worried about high voltage or current but I am worrying it could get messy..
I could just buy two new ESCs with the above features but they cost quite a bit more than the ones I already have so I would prefer to try a few tricks first - if there are any!
