    After my last flight ( slight breeze, lots of hovering, cool day in SoCal) of almost 19 minutes, I noticed that the motors and battery (after removal ) were warm (not hot) to the touch. I'm not sure if it's always been this way ( I've only had 6 flights ) and I'm getting paranoid reading posts here about ESC shorts and wires burning out, or if that's something I should be concerned with. I would think there'd be some heat generated, but how much is too much.?
    Thanks.

    A lot of current runs through a Phantom in flight.
    Yes, it's normal for motors and batteries to get warm.
