Default Drive system for motor without using a Receiver

Can anyone please help.
I am after running a large/low Kv brushless motor using a esc or any other device without using a transmitter or receiver. I would like variable speed although this is not essential. It is for a little project I am doing outside rc.
Can anyone help.
Thanks,
Glenn

All you need is a servo tester. That will drive the ESC, replacing the transmitter/receiver in a conventional RC system. They're readily available e.g. http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store...idProduct=8296

Yup, I've done the same sort of thing with those Microchip microcontrollers. They can be fixed up to either run a preprogrammed motor RPM setup from seconds to hours, or it would not take much to put a little "Volume Control" on it for speed control. It uses a grand total of three parts, all of them cheap.

Finished product is about the size of a quarter. I've made a bunch of them. (It needs a $40 programmer to program it though!)

This is the one I've used for 6-7 years without a glitch! http://www.gobrushless.com/shop/inde...ef=SERVOTESTER

Several years ago I built a microcontroller servo tester with an LCD display that shows the exact pulse width on the display. The parts alone in that thing cost more than the $13 this unit sells for.

Could also look up the timer based ESC controls used in Control line.

http://brodak.com/controller-timer-s...close-out.html

This will turn the motor on and off based on time.

There should also be separate timer units. This one includes the ESC.
