Default 10s-12s Motor with 6s battery?

is this ok?
10s-12s Motor with 6s battery

I have a very different purpose for this. it will not be used with any RC. I have read on another forum someone saying a 4s battery will be ok with a 6s motor. Seems ok, the voltage gap isint that huge, and DC motors usually work on a wide range of voltages, But, paring the 6s battery with a 10s-12s motor is about half the recommended.. will the motor still run?

I think it should be fine. I run 4s on 8s motors all the time with no issues. You will only get half the rpm.

Yeah I would guess so. The power is definetly much less at half volts.
