i believe you owe that to syndr0me.
SL is not a "hack job". SL is actually very smooth, most of the better BL esc's only use the sensors at start up (tekin, speedpassion), and then switch to SL operation once the back emf is established. why? from what i understand this way is more accurate @ higher rpms, but SL start up can be an issue with higher wind motors(which is why most SL combos use faster motors, for example castle's slowest motor is a 4600 kv, which equates to about a 8.5 novak), which is exasperated by the uber tall gearing needed to run on the motors.
