Since I am building a direct drive and don’t have to worry about a gearbox I would like the ESC to emergency brake (basically as hard as possible) the motor when a leash opens a reed switch and/or the board angles more than e.g. 45° in any direction (using a gyro).
I basically have three questions:
Has a hard braking any damage potential to the mechanics and electronics?
How long will it approx. take until the prop is almost stopped?
Hard braking will obviously introduce a lot of torque, is there more injury potential in a braking or a free wheeling motor (and prop)?
