Sorry to hear about the short, that has got to be frustrating. If anyone can overcome this, it will be you.

A hacked servo will indeed provide a micro reversing ESC and it's all I have to use on my micro blimps. I replace the pot with smd resistor chips. Small and light weight.

But it's a poor substitute for a dedicated micro reversing ESC. The deadband in servo electronics is very narrow and floats with voltage and temperature. I have to constantly adjust my trims to maintain 'zero' during the course of a flight. Then there's the non-linear response that must be heavily shaped with expo at the transmitter. Not every servo board will put up with constant full power either. Many will simply cut out after a little hard use.

So while hacked servos will do the job in a pinch, I don't want to have to work around their quirks anymore.
