Any cogging problems with you sensored BL? I believe the sensorless BL have got this kind of problem when starting from standstill.... hence slight delay when accelerating.

I really don't know that they mass produce BL for cars in the yesteryears.................

The only brand that i heard of for cars (insane speed run) those days is the Aveox brushless, and this BL is actually meant for EP planes, but modified for use on cars, and it only accepts 10 cells and above!

The cogging problem is still exist in today's sensorless BL as this is the ESC means to locate the polarity of the rotor, and thus turning it. But the problem seems to smoothen out by using sensors to sense the rotor position. The downside however are the bundle of wires that you will have to tuck inside the car chassis.

yes guys...
i did NOT say that cogging is no longer a problem...
i just say that it has diminished (REDUCED)...

from articles that i read about BL, "Brushless motor technology has existed for quite some time..." again... i didn't say only for cars... *sigh*

my point being that BL has been around for couple of years & it has improved over the years with regards to cogging problems...

or my choice of words (yester-years) brought u back to 5 decades ago???

the link below is one of the articles i've read...
