Motor Input Voltage

Maybe it's a stupid question but I need to know the real input voltage on the motor !
the lipo 3s full charged gives about 12.7~13 Volts
question : the max input voltage in 3s motors is 11.1 how does it takes 11.1 while the battery full charged is about 12.7 volts !?

is this suggestion in the below picture true ?

Regards

A fully charged 3s pack is 12.6v (4.2v/cell), the motor will get all 12.6v on a full pack. If a motor says it's rated for 11.1v, it's really fine on 12.6v and will be getting 12.6v as long as the pack can provide that voltage.

Your 3s lipo will be 12.6v at rest, but it won't be under load. Your voltage will likely be closer to 11.1v under load.
