How are they getting airflow to the motors?

I guess I'll have to see it. From the photos it looks like the motors are burried in those pods with the spinner on the front and no way for air to get to the motor.

I seem to recall that somebody makes a spinner with a hole that lets air flow through it to the motor. Maybe check Hobby-Lobby. That is going to be your only hope at keeping the motors cool that I can see.

Do they intend for the motor to front mount or rear mount? Why are the kidney shaped cooling holes in their motor mount closed off?

If you can front mount one of those outrunners with the fan in the back of it (heli outrunners) that might help also.

I Don't Think There Will Be Any Cooling Issues, I'll Be Using The Same Axi Motors I Have On My Honda Jet And The Motor Area's Muuch, Much Smaller.

Totally different - the Honda jet was a pusher with large open motor pods that allowed air to flow right through and over the motor. With the spinners mounted on this one, I see zero airflow.

Guess You'll Have To Wait Until I Get There To See What I Mean, I Know The Honda Jet Is A Pusher, But These Nucelle Are Much Bigger, The Axi 2826/10 Are Small 40 To 50 Size Motors Compare To Trying To Push A Eflite Power 46 Motor In There, I Would Worry Then Too.

The nacelle is large, but I am not sure if it matters since the spinner is going to completely block the front from any airflow.

It is your plane and of course you can do what you want with it, but I would at least consider putting a platic-spoon type scoop on each side of each nacelle right near the front to get some air moving over the motors.
