What makes you think that quad or tri-copters use "reflashed" ESC's? As far as I have seen, they are standard ESC's the same as for airplanes. The only difference is that you don't want to use any sort of automatic endpoint calibration. One way or another, depending on the brand and make of the ESC, you need to set it in fixed endpoint mode. That doesn't require any sort of reflashing though. With the Castle Phoenix series it is a button click in the computer based setup application, or you can do it via TX stick programming as well. I belive the Turnigy and other similar ESC's effectively do the same thing with TX stick programming.
