FETs are so bad that if you flash them with something better, the speed burns them
what did you do to burn them?
they are definetelly not good for multirotor tests
you need more precise and dependable ECs there
because you can not afford a fail in the motors

I only have one, want to test how to make the motor turn the right speed, design my drone frame with real pieces and have a good idea about the weight. Good enough for me i believe

what do your computer have to do with the ESC and motor?
you need to send servo pulses, the best you can try is alter how often they come
but this ESC will not take anything else than 20ms period
use arduino or the ESP servo library to control it
