They are 3 pole motors, OK up to 6 volts but above that real ESC killers as they will draw horrendous current. There is a thread on here about them.

I have two of them in my lifeboat,and they do kill the esc.At Wicksteed pk last year a lot of people could not believe there eyes,when I put the boat on fwd motion you could see the bottom of the props,it lifted a 47" boat and hydroplane for about 10' then esc cut out.good fun but the motors are something else

That is really interesting and has answered a lot of my problems. I bought 2 of these motors sometime ago one is in a Huntsman and the other I was waiting a use for, the ESC in the Huntsman did some funny things but I never imagined it was the fault of the motor.
They can go back on that well known auction site or alternatively the wheelie bin, who knows {-)

Thanks for the info Chris G
