What advantage would cut vent holes in fue. gas to burshless?

What advantage would you have cutting vent holes in bottom fuselage like is done in gas plane but, for a brushless conversion?

Would they have to be as big?

Would they be worth it?

You still want to keep your motor and esc cool. Also, with the existing air inlets, the air still needs a place to escape.

make sure they are bigger (not sure how much), as an over pressure inside the fuse and wings might push the covering of the wood. It also puts an load on the canopy (latch).
