Continuous only needs to mean sufficiently long to survive the intended use. Otherwise, continuous would mean forever, and it doesn't.
You could say continuous for 2 seconds right? It's really not a proper use of the word if you think about it. It actually should be "continuous for x amount of time" to be useful.

Continuous means Continuous unless your using a play on words, and that should be for the expected life of the motor which should be "X" amount of hours.
unless you limit that by stating that your can only run it Continuously for "X" amount of minutes with a minimum rest of "X" minutes in between of duty cycles.....

Sooo for this "Max Continuous Current: 115A/250A(2sec)" to be true you should be able to run without fail a 800MX motor continuously with a 115 amp load non-stop for "X" amount of hours, "X" = expected life of the motor with amperage spikes up to 250 amps for no longer than 2 seconds......

and as always with all R/C brushless motor company's there is a critical number missing, the "expected life of the motor", now see if you can guess why that is........

No it doesn't. Continuous means un-interupted. It can be un-interupted for 2 seconds. Duration would need to be defined.
Now, we can make up some reasonable figures like,

home vacuum - 2 hours
industrial equipment - 24/7
RC aircraft - 3 minutes Note, there is no need to run this level more than 3 minutes. That won't happen in normal use.

Clasic example is to take a 5hp rated motor on a decent quality, home hobbiest's table saw. It should last many years.
Then take a 5hp rated motor on an industrial table saw that runs 3 shifts. It too should last many years. Now switch motors...I think you know what happens.

They are rated to different standards in order to be appropriate to the intended use. Otherwise, you would be paying more than you need for your table saw.

sorry but i disagree bob, as always no hard feelings.....

although "Continuous" is mostly expressed as "Continuous Duty" so maybe that's where we differ ?

Continuous - Uninterrupted in time, sequence, substance, or extent

anything else is just "salesman speak" ie "BS" to me......

oh and so nobody gets the wrong idea this talk of "Continuous" is not brand specific, it has to do with ALL brands of brushless motors so there's no need for any fan boys to jump all over me !!!

It' ok of course.
You must admit though that continuous duty is not the same for all industries. The example above for instance. Right or wrong, the test for rating the hobby tablesaw is not the same as the one for industrial grade. And they're not trying to pull a fast one on you...they are just specing it more to your needs. Otherwise they would have to charge you another $600 and it would last you 400 years. Honestly, I wish the "marketing machine" did a better job of defining their ratings so yes, I agree there.
Anyway, for me, the 800MX took it's rated power long enough and that coupled with the countless flights to be seen done with them, I feel it is a worthy motor, well suited for most pilots out there.

So what do triangles below names mean?...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

it points at my name & my post and says "One of a kind" sort of lol

i like it because it's a triangle of triangles plus my fav number is 3 !

i know it's stupid but i still like it.... lol

it was harded to make than you might think, give it a try some time......

you see, deep down i really want to be nice to you dude, you just make it really hard to do that most of the time. lol

I guess your prob right, i'm just use to the way it's used in aviation religiously i suppose.....

Oh yes, in full scale you gotta take to heart. No doubt.
This world is a bit more convoluted. For example, you got guys that'll tell you that your problems with product x are because you don't know how to set it up right. Then they'll tell you you'll have problems with your choice of product y because they did...not realizing that this is probably because they didn't set that up right. Then they'll tell you x doesn't need to be worked on, it's perfect always. Then they'll tell you how easy x is to work on. All the while they're spatting off to someone who already has y which is working well for them.
Sound familiar?

It just doesn't work this way in a technical industry.

I'm learning slowly but this aviation mentality is ingrained in me so much so that when you said "Continuous only needs to mean sufficiently long to survive the intended use" i immediately was outraged for a sec, LOL then i had to stop and think maybe in R/C it does mean that, BUT IT SHOULDN"T ! LOL see there i go again ! lol

in aviation Continuous means Continuous or people could die !!!
it's like that, no joke........
