Just don't wanna damage my esc.
every fan has a chip, that is the motor driver (it is a brushless motor).
(XXXfan that is sensitive to heat has three wires.
XXX) KO fan is only two, so i conclude it does not have a temp sensor.
so you can use any 2.5x2.5cm fan on it.
oops i think i made a mistake.
fan that has additional sensor (usually an RPM sensor) should have more than 2 wires.
if there is an ESC with a heat sensitive cooling system, the temp sensor should be inside the ESC near the FET, not inside the fan.
so ESC fan with 2 wires like KO fan should be a standard fan.
