Motor is hanging off the front, how much cooling you want?


Heres the esc cooling. Im a lil worried about the CC125. it was the esc in the burnt X.. Seems to be working alright though....


The amount of space free'd up is huge compared the "standard" X build. Normally the entire nose from the spinner to LE of wing is full of gb/motor/esc. But with the motor hanging out the front its empty.

I think 9S 1800 (5+4) mayfit with a squeeze!

Nice mount Chris.

Was it trial and error to get your pattern or do you have an amazing idea that makes it easy?

I did my jolt one today.. and it was not enjoyable!
I used 2x 2.5mm carbon plates with a balsa inner. Hysol'd in place so it's not going anywhere.

Original X - Hotliner
New X - Speed machine (semi pylon)
Jolt - Pylon that will be built to F5D rules.

Only the Jolt will have a outrunner in it.
