Can anyone else get some readings on any brushless motor and report back? I've tried the 13.5 and the Neo 3 star with poor results.
I have done it. It is pretty straight forward. The key is to turn over the motor SLOWLY while looking at the readout on the meter. Putting a great big pinion on it helps. Note the LOWEST figure displayed.
If you turn the motor over tool quickly the meter will not settle in on a figure and the readout will bounce all over the place.
The figures I got were within the ranges on the Novak site and no where near as low as the minimum readings listed.
FYI, I have an inductance meter because I wind CD-ROM based BL motors for my r/c planes. It nice to have for testing new winds and when you have 10 motors that all look identical lying around
