How are you planning to mount your controller?

Why do I ask? If it is very close to the motor, mounting the inductor between the motor and the controller allows using the motor as a heat sink for both the controller and the inductor.

Hmm. The controller likely wants to be MUCH cooler than the motor needs to be. Perhaps the controller can be the heat sink? But it makes more sense to have the motor tightly coupled to the motor casing ... and the inductor kinda pasted onto the side of the motor casing?

As usual, this would likely cause some noise to interfere with the operation of the controller.
