Getting an ESC to work with arduino Answered

Hello every one, I need to know if its possible to communicate between an ESC and an arduino. I would like to use a tilt sensor measured by the arduino to control a brush-less motor through an ESC. I'm not sure if this is possible but if so what would be a good way to go about doing it?

Thanks for any help

It should be completely possible, the ESC may have to be programmed to have a adjust the data transmission. All you should have to do is have the ESCs signal line connected to a PWM pin on the Arduino then treat it like a servo in the sketch. Best of luck.
