Just finished adding heatsinks to the ESC FETs and the Voltage Regulator. This should take care of any temp problems. A note for anyone wanting to do this. The foam under the brick on the VR side is only 1-2mm thick ! I accidentally cut through it into the intake ducting. This might work out in my favor as now the heatsink will have a little airflow over it. Now that the hole was there I decided to make fit the heatsink while keeping the area smooth. I doubt I'll have any negative effects as the hole is before the fan.

I'll post 3S flight reports as soon as I can get out to the field and try it out. I'll also upload pics then too.
