Kontronic Fun-500 open

Are the Fun 500-19's with open ends available in the US? It seems not, but I can't tell:

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXGUR5&P=7

I need two for the new Rafale. I was going to try to get them from Scholand in Berlin but he hasn't replied in a week (probably on vacation). I am afraid the price he he is going to ask for (incl 19 vat) is going to be much higher than Tower, which sells them for ca. $144 (ca. 109 euros).

Thanks Herb (in Berlin)

The Kontronik 500-19 does not come with open ends

The only modified FUN range of motors with cooling slots is the Competition drives as seen here: http://www.kontronik.com/FAIDrives2005e.htm

Why do you need through air, can't you fit cooling fins to the motor

Designed for helicopters, but suitable for other applications I'm sure

Brian, the heatsink doesnt fit Herbs application which is an EDF. The motors are enclosed in a plastic housing that prevent such an installastion.

Ah, he didn't make it obvious he was using the motor for a Ducted fan operation.

The name "Rafale" meant nothing to me.
