The reason it will run hotter is because lower ESC voltage, to turn the motor, equals higher current draw.

Also, if you run the system at a lower cell count, your power system will just run hotter as well.

Lower voltage = higher current draw = higher ESC & motor temperatures.

You must use a lower KV motor to achieve the desired head speed, and maintain an efficient power system.
Thank you sort of thought this might be the way forward. Looks like a 960 kv in my future
