Default FANS w/Heatsinks

I know there has been a lot of hullabaloo over which company has the best heatsink w/fan...Eagle Racing, 3 Racing, Integy (not feeling their long brackets). For BL, which is the best thats out there AND, where can I get em? Someone had Eagle Racing, but when I looked for it, webpage came up 404 html error.

The Eagle racing heatsink is nice. The fan is junk though (low cfm), it doesn't move much air at all. Replace it with a Novak or MuchMore 30mm fan and you're in business.

Check out this shop for the Eagle Racing heatsink. RC Market Link

Thats the one. When fans were first popping up, they were on top. Now, I see everyone is going along the side (integy, eagle, 3racing<--regular players in the game), any benefit or advantage with fan on the side vs on the top?

I believe the LRP heatsink/fan set is a rebadged Eagle. If I had only known about Eagle before I got the LRP. Black looks so much better IMO

no! the LRP is nothing close to the Eagle. I have both. the LRP uses a 40mm fan. and it's Huge! but it works. I prefer the Eagle. works great except for the fan. after a days race all the blades were broken. replace it with the Novak or MMR 30mm fan.

Just because I need something NOW, I ordered the integy with the fan on the side and the black Novak 25mm x 25mm fan. After monitoring the temps, if it sucks, then I'll just gear down, order the eagle racing and run with the integy heatsink in the interim. Thanks fellas.

Update...the Integy heatsink w/fan is the truth! The fan sounds like a jet whirring on the flightline and kept the motor barely warm. SWEET!

I think this one included the 7.2V fan, if it's necessary to connect directly to battery wires to have enough power to transfer air?
And it's described which fits BL motor, only or also for BR motors?
Best regards

I've been using the Team Tamale mount for a while now. It's not a heat sink per-se, but has the option to mount three fans to it (altough this would only be possibly on a brushed motor), 2 for the can, 1 for the hood.

I guess i would fit on a B/L motor, with two can fans. It's quite good in that it'll fit on any 540sized motor, and one screw it'll slide off. Very impressed with it's idea and exectution...

FYI, I've just bolted on two Much More Fans, the endbell one is blowing air in, the can is sucking the hot air out the vents. Picture;

Twice fans, those are so much, i am just only measuring for a narrow and sharp heatsink with fan to make my 540 motor cooler.
I still think Eagle's one it's more appropriate if fits BR, then change a 5V fan.

This questions might been asked somewhere but... Here it goes...

1. Best to connect the fan via receiver or direct to batts?
2. Will any possible problem occurs if I connect 1 or more fans to receiver?

Thanks.
