I was thinking about using this motor
as a winch motor for big gliders. My problem is that i need an esc that can handle the current, and I also need to be able to run the motor both ways. In reverse I don't need full power though. Any suggestion how I can do this?
It was all digital

If you by "big gliders" mean somthing like this:
the motor will not have enough power to launch.
We are using a rebuild Crysler V8 at around 350 cubic '' for wrench launce in my glider club. Not sure how many hp are left.

nope like 1/3 scale rc gliders...
So a bit smaller than fullsize gliders...

That seems an awfully nice motor to be doing a simply winching job. Surely an electric scooter motor would be adequate - and a lot cheaper to buy. Readily available with power/speed of 600watts/3000rpm. And they only demand 12, 24 or 36 volts

600W is way to little...
Find a 14kw motor cheaper than 300usd, which is also physically small, then tell...
