Brushless Motor Control

I'm trying to design the motor control system for an autonomous quad-rotor. We're building it from scratch, against my personal desire to use an existing platform like the pelican, and we're using brushless motors to power the propellers. My group just purchased the Mystery 12A Brushless Speed Controller (Blue Series), and I'm trying to figure out how to get ROS to talk to it. I really have no idea how to do this. The tutorials do not mention anything about how to control motors. Will I have to write my own system? Is there a package that can already do this?
