can i use this for control a hard disk motor? just for a speed control project

The Hard Drive motor is a stepper motor (to precisely put the head over dedicated sectors to read/write data). It is a brushless motor with Star winding. you must find the middle wire and use the three other ones to connect the ESC. And it should work.

if a motor need 10 A esc and i buy 25 A esc for 2 motor will it work

Short Answer: No. Long Answer: A Brushless ESC drives motors by sending a complex sequence of signals for rotation. The correct phase varies based on the motor rotation, which is taken into account by the ESC. (Usually, back EMF from the motor is used to detect this rotation). Connecting two motors to a single ESC would muddle this process and you would damage all of the electronics. (I've head of cases where people have used perfectly matched motors sharing a single drive shaft, but that still sounds like too much risk for so little reward.)

Good ESC. Peak measured current draw with my C20 Motor was 12 Amps. Very decently priced. LImited programming but can be done through the tx sticks. Good value for money. Recommended for indoor flying for model weight 120-200 gms.

This is a no frills ESC that works great. I have tried it with both inrunner and out runner and both worked equally well. Just cant beat the price on these esc's!!!

I ordered two of them for first tests because I want to use them in a little quadcopter project. They work very smooth with the AX-2308N1100 motor from Hobbycity. Unfortunetely, the two delivered ESCs are not identical with respect to the firmware: the beep sequence at startup is different and they have different working curves. Nevertheless, I have one in my ordering pipeline and will order two additional ones for that attractive price. So I hope to have success in finding a good combination for my quadcopter project.

Don't judge the super simple escs by the price! They work. The true value of these controllers is the ease of use. I have many other more expensive esc's, and the super simple actually have had fewer problems. If you try one you'll get more of them.
