alright. my inexperiencedfulness is starting to kinda show here...
I bought a really cheap brushlless outrunner (exceed RC Alpha 370 (1360kv)). When I try to spin it up, it cogs, whines, and spins at about 1000 rpm for two seconds before the esc gives up and kills power to it. Is there something I can do to modify the motor and make it actually spin up? Or is it just a cheap motor?
If I get it spinning at that clicky, rough 1000 rpm, pull the throttle all the way to zero, and then up again slowly it wiill spin up with no load. When I put the load on it (the disk), it just won't go by itself.
The thing is... it was working this morning. I don't get it.
I'm using a 40A power supply too, so it's not a battery problem or anything...
