Mine plugs into the receiver.............................I have seen some guys put alligator clips on the wires and hook it to the battery just before running.

I have a fan on my motor. I soldered the lead wires to the speed control so the fan gets 7.2 volts, and put a switch in one of the wires. I can turn the fan on separately from the car, and leave it on after the car is turned off. I'm using the Novak fan.

I soldered mine straight to the corally plugs used for the battery. I did this for two reasons:

- 7.2V from battery
- AARCMCC (Australian affiliation body) rules state that fans have to be run off the battery and not the receiver.

If you just solder the leads to the speed control it accomplishes the same thing. I would thing soldering to the ESC would be much simpler as you wouldn't have to deal with the wires moving around, etc.

I don't like soldering things direct to the ESC, I'm always a bit worried about melting the case etc. As for the wires moving around, I have the fan wires cable-tried to the battery wires, so they don't move at all.

You could but the fan wouldn't run all of the time. For example, with the car is stationary (0% throttle) the fan would also be stationary. It would be more efficient to attach the fan to the battery wires or to the receiver.
