I added a cut down plastic spoon to either side of the existing motor cooling holes. It helps ram some air in there and can prevent the prop from fouling the canopy when it folds. One mod I never got round to doing was adding an exit hole at the highest point of the canopy.
The easiest way to cut the spoon is a hot blade. If you go into thread tools & search for attachments you will see thumbnails of photos. To view the post relating to the attachment, left click the photo and then left click (post/....) It is by far the quickest way of viewing mods, colour schemes etc. Alternatively, you can search the thread for "cooling" or similar and find info pertaining to your need that way.
