Heat

Murdo - I am hoping to get the first flight in tomorrow with the NEU at 4S I opened up my cooling holes in the nose a bit more today and made some improvements to the vents. I realize now (hindsight 20/20) that getting heat out of the motor and plane is parmount for these larger planes and motors.
When the new Monster comes, that will be my first consideration of the build...where to put the scoops and where to put the vents. The goal for that plane is 250 (doesn't hurt to try) and it won't get there unless it can get rid of the HEAT. Should know tomorrow if I can go to 5S with this motor. It will all depend on the temp of the case when I land

Well I'll probably start breaking props tomorrow...should start buying some shares in APC. I don't think snapping props will hurt your motor...if you can get that thing on the outside in the air by all means do it!
