Some escs are poor at starting smoothly dont forget you can use a smaller esc as you are not doing any real work with the fan/motor so you may have an old one in the bits box.

enable the soft start function in the esc, gearbox/heli mode if you can.

The sensors are quite tough but a big fan and a violent start may cause a large amount of travel.

The good news is they are not expensive 3gbp per pair plus postage.
I have been extremely rough with them myself and not been able to destroy one in normal use.

The nature of the way the unit is constructed will physically limit the travel so the beam cannot get at them too badly.
