5 blade fan...I had all of those specs that you ask of (sans the motor temps) written down but can't find them...But I do know that I'm using a 12 amp Turnigy Plush ESC and don't have any over amp cutoffs...

The thing is when measuring motor temps is that you really have to know what you are doing using a digital laser thermometer...I'm a trained digital thermographer and the emissivity of the component measured is VERY important...I'm seeing figures here on RCG that might as well be thrown out of the window due to not measuring properly...I'll try to paint a small section of the aft end of the can flat black to get a proper temperature reading...Measuring temps on shiny surfaces is useless as the emissivity of the object will give a false reading....
