Everyone knows CC ESC's can run 2 of some motors perfectly at the same time.

Question is.
Is it the motor windings and how the windings are connected ?
Or.
The ESC ?

I lean to a simple few poles and basic A B C in star or delta.

I don't think "everybody knows" what you think they do.
http://www.castlecreations.com/media/castle_scribe_archives/Castle%20Scribe%20CE-03-Mar2006.pdf and read the section called "Multi-motor Power Systems".

I looked on that site but never found your post.

Thanks.
I want to do some twins and now I know how to burn up a ESC correctly. :Q

Cyclops, I don't think it is a matter of the ESC's as much as it is the motors themselves. I have run two e-Flite motors on one e-Flite controller with out much trouble. The biggest problem was getting both motors to start and stay running at low throttle settings. In most cases I had to go to full throttle to start the motors and remember not to reduce throttle below 25% for fear one motor would shut down. All applications I have done have been e-Flite Park 370's or smaller self wound motors. That's about all I can contribute to your question. You might try to contact the company that was selling the Jinx. They used CC ESC's and the motors were simular to some of the Strong Motors and Gobrushless designs.
