Default Does a Jet brush less motor get Hotter than a prop plane motor

I have just gotten into RC Jets a 64 MM F16 and a 64mm F22 , I have noticed when I static run the model Jet with a good battery when I touch the motor after removing the cover its seems very hot compared to an open propped RC model is this normal?

If you are concerned about you motor getting too hot, fit a cooling ring over it, (heat sink) you can buy them in any size to fit you motor. EDFs usually work bit hotter than prop planes due to the latter direct air flow over them, from my experience. But, then again, it all depends on the individual set up.
