Quick update. I had a piece of copper pipe that left about a 0.1" gap around the Scorpion outrunner motor. When I ran the Scorpion motor inside the pipe, the was no increase in no load current.

I also got a second piece of pipe that fit around the SK 63-64-230kv motor that did not have the cross piece for mounting the motor. Holding it around the motor while running increased the no load current to near 5 amps. The copper pipe got hot fast even though it was not in physical contact with the motor.
