as usual it depends on several factors.

the weak part in a BLDC-motor are the magnets.
when they get to hot, they will be unmagnetized...

there are different magnets on the market...the cheapest start to unmagnetize @80°C and the best can hold up 200°C

IF its a DCBL motor the magnets are starting to getting damaged after 170 Degrees(F)
