cowl vents

did not like the idea of no air exiting the cowl. I cannot believe that even in the stock set-up with a battery clogging up most of the channel in the fuselage that much air is going over the motor and thru the fuselage. So..... I took out the dremel and knife and carved some "scale" cooling slots in the semi-openned molded cowl flaps.

I also openned up some more of the dummy engine (between the rocker arms)
