Using Afro 12A ESC to get reverse direction rotation of motor


I am using an Afro 12A ESC for my motor. I am able to rotate the motor in one direction. However, I couldn’t find anything online which suggested as to how to get my motor rotate in the reverse direction using the ESC. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.


You will have to change the firmware on the ESC to have it be bi-directional. If you check out this forum post about adding an additional motor to our electronics there is a step by step guide.


Thanks… I will try to do that. If nothing happens, then will let you know.


I had another question. If I use OpenROV to change the firmware on the ESC, can I use this ESC to work on any other machine (not OpenROV). Will it still be bi-directional?
