Motor Jerks and Cogs and gets Very hot

I have a FreeRCHobby thruster motor, model 66112.

8 pole

14S

70A

2kw continuous.

Flipsky 75100 running firmware 5.3.

I have set up FOC in VESC Tool. 

The motor gets very hot and does not actually spin. it just seems to be cogging and getting hot.

Can someone please help me.

Thanks

I have the same problem with a similiar motor/esc. In bldc mode it runs better, but not perfect.
