Scorpions can get hot, keep in mind you'll only be able to keep your fingers there for a second at 65 celsuis which is still very acceptable, but the esc would be my worry, i've seen a ice cause a major fire, lipo etc on a logo.
Check your amps, if borderline drop a t on pinion you can drop up to 20 amps doing so

Common sense may not be common after all

Hmmmm....

Thats the exact setup im flying but have no such temp problems....must be either your ESC settings or gear mesh....

You say you dont have a temp meter....just get a Castle link and use the ICE data logging function for ESC temp.

What size blades are you using..?

I used to have overheating problems back when I ran 16t and 560s. Going down to 15T and raising the throttle setting yielded the same HS but with a cooler running system.
