I plugged in the bird one motor to an M365 motherboard, got the hall/phase wire pairs right so it would rotate, but then when I test-rode it, the motherboard overheated WAY too fast and melted several of the copper traces on the back of the board, similar to several other posts on this forum of bird zero motors with the M365 mobo.So unless someone has something to say to counter this statement, I don't think it's possible to hook up a bird one motor to the M365 for now without limiting the power output or you'll need some kind of cooling to keep the motherboard working properly.
