I'e seen that speed controllers appear to be rather much cheaper than motor controllers question is can they servethe same purpose?
my english teacher once said, "dont talk about what you dont know in public...."

so I replied the truth, " Exactly why I dont ever talk about English."

Yes they can, but watch out for the amp ratings... an ESC may be rated for 60 amps, but those are for RC airplanes that have basically no load on them - make sure that for whatever motor you are using, that the stall current of the motor doesn't exceed the amp rating of the ESC.
