Those fans are just regular 5V fans MM have found a supplier from and OEMed it and sell it for a good profit margin...

I just get my fans from electronics components shop and cost only $3 each.

Find a fan with the highest amp draw. Then don't connect to your receiver, direct solder it to your ESC 7.2Vs direct. And man it blows...!

They are good fans, but as mentioned just relabelled OEM products. I have found someone in the UK who I can get them a couple of cheaper.

ya I had the problem of getting one of the trinity fans with the stand offs, to go on the endbell of the motor, well buddy at the LHS said to hook right up to the bat, and it would spin a little faster, hooked her up, and it did not even spin. but it started to get hot, went and got another one, he tested it first on they're power supply, ran good, went home put it on, same thing, would not even turn over once. the motor did say 5 v on the side, so I got a much more, and well it works fine. so there are some better quality and cheep'r quality fans out there.

I find my 3 racing heatsink fans seem to stop mid race and can only put it down to them not liking the magnetic field from the can.
