It is not that easy. Aside from switching leads you need to reset the timing and the backplate is glued on with a laquer material. Best to send it back to Astro.

Alternatively you could switch to a sensorless ESC...

Just go sensorless, switch any two leads and go the other way. Worked great with my Mega when adding the GB.

Keep 'em hummin'
