Nice theory but a lot of ECSs will not even power up without a motor connected (the ones I use dont). With any ESC you will have no beeps either, hard to program without them if you use sticks (the ESC makes the motor vibrate to generate the tones).

Since they seem to be designed for programming with a motor attached, chances are the failure was coincidental.

A VFD running a motor while changing settings is a different story. Every RC ESC tells you to connect the motor to program.
