How common is it to change the Beta factor?

I have just completed my first build using Flipsky VESC6.6 and a 5065/270KV motor. The first trial at max speed lasted only for a minute until it went in to power limit and I think it is the motor temperature sensor which is a bit too sensitive.

It shows 80 degrees when the can is lukewarm.

I have increased the beta factor and now it works well but I would like to know if it is common that this factor must be adjusted?

You need to know which thermistor is in the motor, so you can look at the datasheet and get these numbers. Your motor manufacturer should supply this.
