I've got a brushless DC-motor and an ESC. The ESC has three wires and the motor 8 (of which 5 are for the Hall sensor). The 3 wires of the ESC are not colored or marked, so I just wanted to try some different attachment variations until it works.
If I attach it wrong I would assume it would simply not work. I don't want to run the risk of breaking stuff though. Is it possible that I somehow physically mess up my DC-motor or ESC by attaching it the wrong way?
