I still stick with it being a BLDC. The posted information calls out an "inverter" a common name for BLDC ESC boards. The control board pictures show no phase capacitors like you would see in a VFD.(not sure if "phase caps" is the correct term for them in a VFD)

I don't recall ever seeing a LRA figure on a BLDC motor?
"Peak, Locked Rotor, & Rated Torque

The peak torque is the maximum amount of torque produced by a motor, usually only for a short time during start up/slow down. This is sometimes rated in reference to the locked rotor torque, also known as the continuous stalling torque when the rotor is at stall (zero speed). The rated torque is the continuous torque at the suggested speed, and is a good indication of the motor’s performance when the motor reaches rated speed(s). A useful concept to know is that, as a motor increases in speed, it generally reduces in torque, and vice versa. So the locked rotor torque is one extreme of this analogy, and the no-load speed the other, where the motor’s optimal speed and torque lies somewhere between these two values."

Many other places call it LRT not LRA when talking about BLDC motors.
