I have a pretty simple question but I can't find an answer even on the Align website - how many poles does the Align BL450M motor have? 2? 6?

It's a parameter for ESC set-up.

Six. You can count them by looking thru the bottom of the motor.

Mine has 9 poles.

From the manual
For the Align BL35X ESC
"Electronic Timing Option - 3 settings, low - mid - high
2 pole motors are recommended to use LOW timing, 6 or more poles should use MID timing, HIGH timing gives more power at the expense of efficiency."

My sincere apologies, I obviously did not have my glasses on when I counted. This motor definitely has nine poles..

Sorry for any confusion that ensued.

Ok, it looks like I should use "MID" timing on the ESC then, as I have no need for *extra* power just yet

Number of poles
I'm really new to this and don't wish to disagree with anything the experienced people say but, according to the motor manual supplied by Align, the 450m has 6 poles.
