Easystar FPV motor failure! Video attachted

Video of flight below!
Today I flew my easystar with an fpv system. I had a 2200 3s lipo and 1000 mah 3s lipo on board to power plane and transmitter. My system is a 40a ESC and a Himax HB2815-3000 RC Brushless Inrunner Motor 86g 250W. Here is the link to the motor...
Today I flew for about 5 or so minutes and the motor shut off, luckly I was able to land it without any damage. The motor had melted the glue holding it in as well as the foam around it. It was to hot to touch for about 10 minutes and no longer works. The prop was a 6-5.5 prop. Yesterday I was using a 6x4 I belive and the prop came off during flight and yes it was on good. This prop was the only one I had so i put it on. Im wondering if the prop caused it to overheat or the load of a 2200 3s lipo and 1000 3s lipo with a gopro camera and case or not. I was only running motor at roughly 3/4 throttle. Please help! I want to figure this out so I can get back up flying fpv Video is below of flight below!
