Brushless ESC for flywheel only?
I'm working on a gyro project that uses flywheels at high RPM.
I've heard that RC car ESCs should be a better choice over heli ESC for starting torque, but I am not sure which one is the most suitable. Sites like HobbyKing have a hundred to choose from.
Do car ESCs do high RPM under no load? I'm looking for:
-torque start (dont care how slow it starts)
-high max rpm
-doesnt need a high amp rating
I have a helicopter ESC which runs the hard drive motor fast, but will not start with a heavy wheel attached.
Any advice on which ESC to get would be much appreciated.
