I was wondering how much is too hot. I fly smooth 3d and not too hard, but my motor gets really hot (almost burn your fingers hot). I haven't payed too much attention to it before, now i guess its concerning me. My timing(5*) and hertz(8KHz) are set to factory specs. Its rated for 356*f, I haven't checked the actual temp with a temp-gun yet but was wondering if this is normal.

I have some Scorpion motors that come down too hot to touch, Put a gun on them and they are in the 180*-190* range, They say that temp and higher is OK. Get a gun and check yours, Scorpions generally run pretty hot.
