But yeah, if it's not done in any smart way it can be compared to a fairly hard climb-out.
No way Tintin.... at least not IMO. You're asking a heck of a lot of a brushless ESC to have it put power back into a LiPo - correct voltage, less than 1C (when it does not KNOW the C) on the fly.

The only way I can see a brake working is by using power and having the ESC 'drive' the motor backwards. If someone knows better then I'd be happy to be educated... always good to learn how these things actually work
