I notice in alot of these setups there isnt a heatsink/fan installed on the motor, do you guys take it off for the photo purposes or you just don't have a use for them?

I don't use a motor heatsink. My chassis is aluminium, and absorbs a lot of the heat. But I do have a heatsink that I'll be installing soon.

How did you get you wires to coil like that if you don't mind me asking?

Get a pen or a screwdriver shaft and wrap the wire around it, then slide the pen out and plug the wire into the receiver

Using a lighter to heat the wire while it's coiled helps too.

Fair enough, I m only running in 540 at the moment so it's not an option to not run one.

Anyway, here's one of mine Please excuse the power switch.
