Make do with the electronics available to you

I am learning new things everytime I work on the Flying Thing prototype. Though scarce are the necessary electronics, I am making do with what is available, so as to prove concepts early enough prior to development of a stable and working monitoring aircraft.

 I received three brushless motors from Dan, and I've no way of making them work: I have no Electronic Speed Control (ESC). So I've embarked to built one using transistors. photos below.
The photo above.... I am using an old laptop's parallel port to fire transistors: Three half bridges (six transistors) to generate the required 3 phase signal....
