The key objectives of this job are:

1. Verify that the ST-V3 servo tester at the link below can be re-programmed in an easy fashion, and write simple proof of principle firmware ("Hello World"). Please note, that this part of the project will be $400 US at most.
  [obscured]  -rc.com/Showcpzs.asp?id=912

2. If it can be re-programmed, then write firmware specifically for motor control and RPM measurement. This firmware is a lot simpler than the one it comes loaded with. The specification for this firmware will be provided once step 1 is verified, and the price for this part will be $1600 US at most.

I have taken apart one of these testers, and it uses an STM8S105C6T6 MCU, and there appears to be headers for it to be programmed whiles on the board. See attached images of the PCB board.

A new servo tester, along with motor/ESC will be provided to selected contractor.
