GAUI tiger Shark Delta w/MMX fan

Hi guys,

As promised here we go. Start by cutting a gap in the ring that fits over the fan. This is for the wires to feed through. Then thin CA the ring to the fan and attach the fan/motors wires to the esc. This is the 3s version so I'm using a CC-60 but the Pentium-60 will work just as well.
Next dremel out the spots I marked on both fuse sides so the fan fits snug but the fuse half join without forcing them.
Take a file and open a hole for the servo wires to go into the fuse.

HS-65MG servos glued in with foam safe. The fan is secured with 5 minute epoxy. I use 30 minute epoxy to glue the fuse together.

I found it too.
Hey Digger. Is it my imagination or is the esc not going to be getting much cooling air in that location?

OK look for a mold circle just in front of the servo. Push a small Phillips through the center to start the hole.
Take the CF tube and file one end so it is sharp. Push and twist the CF until you have a hole in the side of the fuse. Do the same thing to the other side then insert the rod but don't glue it.
