Build a Run Motor tester.

Can anyone point me to a DIY build for a unit that will run the motor and ESC without RXer?

Thanks, but I basically use Picmicro's as a processor, if I new the required signal requirements etc I could probably write the code, I had assumed one may be out there that used standard logic instead of processing power.
I am guessing it is just a PWM signal?

A standard servo PWM signal should work fine.

Search for somehing like 'servo signal' or 'servo pwm' etc.

If you search in the DIY Electronics forum you'll find plenty of information.

As a matter of fact I built virtually the same circuit to simulate a Pic PWM output signal some time ago, I will have to compare it.
Thanks
