Don't think you could be more wrong! Writing good code for brushless controllers is not easy at all. Besides there is more to it than just switching the winding on and off. You need to do this at the right time, hence the need for some sort of positional feedback system. I believe there is a good reason why the market is not swamped with cheap brushless controllers.
