On my waterproof tricopter I installed aluminium heatsinks through the fuselage so that the fins stick outside and four screws plus silicone sealant make sure it's a watertight installation. Then I mounted the ESCs on the inside side of the heatsink. It works well, but I'm not sure how difficult it would be to do the same with this shells.
