I'm curious whether the ability to do either of the various oneshot, dshot protocols and even bi-directional is limited by the ESC/FC combo or whether the motor has to be compatible as well? I'm doing a zmr250 revival build with new components but the motors are pretty old so just curious as I'll want to run dshot300 (f4 stack) with bi-directional dshot enabled.

Motor/Prop info
DYS BE1806

Just to conclude this for anyone else's benefit. The old DYS BE1806 motors are working just fine on DSHOT300. I did have to flash the ESCs to Jazz M 16.73 to get Bi-Directional working but its all good. So to answer my own question its the ESC that defines the protocols available and not the motors themselves :)
