How hot is the esc getting? If its not getting that hot, I don't see that you need the fan. When its 95F in the summer, that may be diff though.

Protect it with some screen like on a screeen door, the metal kind, that would keep the big pieces out and what would make it thru shouldn't bother the fan.
