With the current firmware: Definitively no. Switching from one side to the other in the current setup means that the "other" strategy gets to initialize all the hardware and measurements, and then gets to control them. Stuff like "command zero current and calibrate the current sensors". That's what happens when you switch from BLDC to FOC....
