    Hey, Thanks for the response, I read it as you had created yourself an arduino motor analyzer. I was trying to work out a simple way to do it.

    I can easily control an esc from an arduino, I can read both voltage and current before the esc, and I should be able to read the pulses on the sensor board too.... Just need to get my head around how the analyzers interpret timing etc. I am not sure its even possible without effectively creating your own esc to drive it.

    My rotor tester is only for testing the rotors magnetic strength. I have both a motor analyzer from Sky RC and a MiniPro motor dyno.

    For my rotor tester I used an analog non-latching hall effect sensor connected to one of the analog pin. I just read the voltage on A1 which is around 2.5v with no magnetic field. When it's below 2.5v it's south pole and above 2.5v is north pole strength.

    I can send you my sketch if you'd like.

    I saw your post about having built an arduino based rotor tester. Do you have any more information on this?
    Im curious about building something similar, and have an ardiuino and hall sensors so can read the RPM, but do you use a speed controller or have you also got a drive unit too?
    Also where do you read the current etc, on input to the speedy / motor.

    Any info would be gratefully received.

    Regards, Sid.
