Castle Creations - Alright, we have something for those requiring a bit "cooler" operation.
The Phoenix Edge HVF 160 has a built in 5 volt DC fan providing the much needed cooling in applications that have little to no airflow to the ESC, keeping your setup running healthy and efficient. It works great in 700 and 800 size helicopters with a full canopy or aircraft where the ESC is mounted inside the fuselage without venting. The fan has a 12 inch standard receiver lead that can be plugged into any channel on the receiver.
Size and Weight
Programmability - Fully programmable Castle feature set using Castle Link USB adapter (coupon for free Castle Link USB adapter included in package) and freely downloadable Castle Link Windows software. Castle Field Link Programming Card (sold separately) compatible for select functions.
Connectors - Battery and motor connectors sold separately
Tools needed for installation - Soldering iron and solder to attach bullets to motor wires and battery connector to power wires.

That's a shame. Between 6 to 8 years when I was proto-typing 30 and 50 size e-powered conversion helis I used pancake fans on all my ESC's. Hacker and Kontronic...or whatever ESC I was running that would handle 6S to 8S. NEVER had a burnt out ESC or issue. So I guess the fan worked.
I also had the same pancake fans on my Hacker motors too. Trying to keep the operating temps below 170F was the goal.
Funny...now it's getting recognized and thought to be the best thing since sliced bread.
I too have been using them on my esc's for years. castle could do a better integration of the fan into the housing making a lower profile and also cooling the fets with direct air flow and not just the sink. it worked very for me that way.
