For a magnetic sensor, you just need to get the magnet over the sensor and measure between the signal wire and the ground wire, or not have the magnet over the sensor, depending on whether it's a normally high or normally low signal . For a phase sensor, if the signal is normally high with the motor off, you can measure the voltage as with the magnetic sensor. If it's normally low, you'd need to spin up the heli and use an oscilloscope.

Experience is something you gain only after you need it.
I wouldn't mind social media so much if it didn't involve people.
