Proper heat sinks added to X350

Done! I added a couple of aluminum Maxx Products 20mm heat sinks to the X350 little 180 brushed motors, using Arctic Silver V thermal compound, by replacing the stock cheap stamped tin "heat sink" and the plastic motor cage/fasteners with the two real heat sinks only added 5 grams over the original weight. Hopefully, that will extend the life of the stock brushed motors, also, I think I will limit the flight durations to around7-8 minutes on this bird to let the little motors have a chance to cool off in between flights.
