Sensor cable recently came in the mail. I’ve been running sensorless for months with no issues. My motor didn’t come with CBA markings so I’m having to plug it in, try, and then rewire if it doesn’t spin.
First time I plugged it in it cogged back and forth. I changed 2 wires, and it instantly ran smooth, but with insane power. I think at half throttle it was spinning almost faster than it was at full throttle back when it was sensorless.
I unplugged everything because I’m scared I’m messing something up. I pulled the throttle somewhat hard (not full) and the whole motor spun out from the torque and twisted the wires. (Was holding it by the wires, wasn’t on the motor mount).
Either it just has insane power like this, or something is wrong. Can someone people give me some insight into this? I hope I didn’t break anything…
For the record, my ESC is both sensored and sensorless. Motor is sensored.
