can I replace the receiver with PWM signal from the microcontroller?

Hey everyone,

I’ve been searching quite desperate online about this specific question, but haven’t found anything useful, therefore I’m turning to reddit for help.

My goal is to control a DC motor that already has an existing ESC. However, the original ESC is connected to a receiver (radio I guess). Since I will be controlling via a microcontroller that has PWM output, would it be possible to replace the receiver output (i.e. ESC signal input) with some wires connected to my PWM pins?

Link to the ESC datasheet:

Any input is appreciated!
