Default Motor is getting hot

While it flies pretty good, the motor on my Hurricane is hot when it comes down. I let it cool before taking off, but I wonder if this could be an indicator of something I need to adjust.

My throttle curve is pretty normal. 75 at mid stick.

I don't know what motor it is, it is what came on the heli (used) and the can is blank.

I don't know the temp, but I can't hold it for long.

...From your photo, It looks like that motor is the stock 1100 Gaui motor(tall can)
and it will get hot, VERY HOT!
No worries though...that is normal for that motor...

I've had a few gauis and i ran my esc on the bottom of frame. Undetermined main gear. It gets good airflow. There and helps. Also run a logo 400 canopy. Fits well plenty of room for batts and has air vent cut in top of canopy above motor. The scorpion motor runs quite hot too. This helped out alot
