DJI F550 motors running at 140 degrees, are they running too hot ?


I usually fly my hexacopter with all my gear at 4lb 10oz and the motors only get warm.
Well now I have added landing gear and my Sony Nex5n and it flies great with no vibrations but now I'm at just about 6lbs.

I'm only hovering and my motors are running at 140 degrees for the hottest one and the rest about 130 to 135 degrees.

Question is, is this way too hot for the stock DJI motors ?
The Tiger motors were recommend to me but they're pretty expensive for the full set.

I just don't want the motors to overheat and my F550 with all my FPV gear and Sony camera to come falling out of the sky.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
I'm amazed how stable this thing is, can't wait to add a gimbal.

Old thread, but what did you end up with?

Have a f550 and would like to be able to lift a nex7, but dont trust the f550 to do it.. These engines sound like they are going to pop any minute ;-)
