Momentum in the typical model railroad sense is nothing more that a slow ramp up and ramp down of electric power. This supposedly makes the electric motors start up more slowly. In reality, many of them do still lurch into action when the voltage finally overcomes the friction of the drive train. With a battery powered motor controlled by an ESC this is likely to be about the same.

What deep gearing does is smooth out the lurch of the motor and reduce the effects of the friction in the drive train.
