Start testing code without motor or encoder attached

Hello everyone,

Currently I have the Odrive and 2 motor + encoders. Someone I know is building the mechanical connection for the encoder and frame for the motor. To start I would like to upload some code to the Odrive board without having them connected, but am not sure if this is safe? In other words will the Odrive board get damaged if I set it to a specific torque/speed/position without the motor or encoder connected?

Kind regards,
