DIY Microprocessor and ESC
Summary of Microprocessor out there. Best description I have seen to clear the fog. Link
Another even better summary: Link
Atmel Microprocessor Basics:
Also look at AVR forum It has the getting started page.

Need a programmer to program the ATiny. Use AVRISP2 or use Arduino from MIT Lab. AVRISP2 will program more chips than using the Arduino as outlined in MIT Lab. For free programming, use the AVRSTUDIO 4 development softwar. AVR sells several versions of ATiny. ATiny 13 is used in the "The Steve". Arduino programmer supports ATiny 45 or ATiny 85. These are more powerful than the ATiny 13.
DIY Brushless ESC
Fly Electric: Transform a Turnigy Plush 6A to a esc that automatically shuts off for free flight..
AVR172: Document on ATMEL site tells you how to do brushless ESC using ATmega32M1. This person used an ATmega88p processor.
Quax's DIY speed control web page. This is the person who originated the flea. Steve copied it and sold it as "The Steve" His favorite microprocessor is the ATmega8.
AVR book. Good book step by step for the AVR using Codevision C compiler.
