Hi
I have never used a sensored motor so cannot comment there but I have used various unsensored 50mm and 63mm motors and personally cannot find any reason I would go with sensored.
I only get cogging if I want to start from a complete standstill, and even then it is just for a moment until the wheels are turning and then all is OK.
Personally though I never start from a dead stop, when I get on I always give a small, and I mean small, push - just enough to get rolling. Seems unnatural to me to do otherwise.
With this small push and the already rolling wheels I do not get any cogging, even with a single 50mm motor. (And using various ESCs, even the cheap, and good, FVT120 6S ESC)
