    I have a question.

    If i am running a motor backwards so that i put mechanical energy in and get electrical energy out, and the motor works lets say CCW, if i start to turn it CW does it draw power back, or draw current away

    um???
    I will try and make sense of this..

    If you spin a motor, you will get electrical energy.
    If you span it one way and got +5V out, if you spin it the other way you would get -5V (relative polarity) out. Spining it the other way just reverses the polarity of the voltage you get out :)

    Hope that helps
