MEGA in Corona finally Works!!But HOT!

Bought new Corona to use my existing Mega 16/15/4, but after assembly it would only scoot around in ground effect! Was only pulling 12 to14 amps max. So stuck in an Atomic force /9t pinion and it worked. But after needing brushes i wanted to use the Mega, so bought some pinions from Robinson Racing, ended up with 12 tooth. With Atomic it hovered at 3/4 stick for 6 mim with 7c/2400. Now with same batts and re-geared Mega it hovers at 1/2 stick for 10 min,big improvement. Only problem is motor heating. 12v fan won't work with 7c pack tried it, but will 5v fan pluged into reciver cause any problems? What is everyone else useing? Will fan in reciever cause any problems as i am useing the BEC of the Jeti 40 Gold Label controller? Any advice will help. THNX BOB

Cut a few holes in your canopy and get yourself a heatsink. I thought it was the B50 heatsink but I think it's the B40 heatsink you need, they're like $13 from www.aircraft-world.com just gotta get the size cleared up from some Mega ezoners

Oh yea, they 5 volt van will work in your rx, I've heard of many who done that...

It's the B40 heatsink you need. It works really well on the Mega 16/15, but it's a tight fit.
