That's actually relatively cool. Hard 3D on my Scorpions typically put them around 160-170F, around 4 minute flight times.

I have the same setup and I come in between 130 and 140f, which is right where you are at.

I'll just add to the consensus, that 60 C (140 F), is normal for that motor in that application. No issues at all.

yeah right laughingstill!! like you once said (and were sooooo right by the way) voltage is like crack, the more you have, the more power you need. every time i stepped up in voltage, the power became addicting and i pushed the system even harder!

theoretically, same wattage used and higher voltage system will yield a happier, cooler motor, esc, and lipos. trick is to not use the extra power available.

BTW, I am one of the few that flies my 6003D with 623's under 2k, and I consider my flying style hard. I learned on nitro

@ 3d alex
I also run 623's under 2k. I turn 1875 . I run a full 6 Mins. with 10s.
My motor esc and batteries run very cool. I fly mostly big air with mild 3d, but a friend of mine hammers the s**t out of it and it flys great at that head speed.

i find the more skillful you are, the less headspeed you can cope with and still make even harder 3d movements look good. super high headspeed is used by some pros because they can push it to the limits even further, but most newer guys go for uber headspeed to make up for not to great collective management. Everyone of course can pick their poison, i just prefer to shoot for an overall efficient system that i can get 6 minutes doing pretty much whatever i want, and using the disk inertia for those instantaneous "pop" movements, then backing off.

I run about 1900 12s with a pyro 700-45 12t. Everything is cool, power is unbelievable, and I'm using S**t turnigy packs getting 6 min. Oh yeah, I also put only 3300 mah into 4500mah packs.
