Yeah, but this is NOT brain surgery, nor does justify a dozen posts to the
reflector. Haul out your wire tables that show resistance per foot for various
wire sizes, use your VOM to measure the current with a short cable connecting
the rotor to the controller (or look at the manufacturer's specs for current),
use Ohm's law.
