Default New reedy cooling gizmo

This thing is very cool *pun intended*



The pic is coming from a German site... anybody knows the part number, a price and who would stock it and sell online in the US? And one last thing... is the fan itself included? Has anybody tried this thing? This solves all the mounting problems once and for all...

Thanks,
Later
Paul

Hey Lonestar check this out : part number 447 price $29.99.

It's listed in the ae website, I sent the news to petit rc when I saw this on the net, but it's still not on the website.

man it kills me that it takes a francophone to provide me with the data... Too bad the petitrc admin didn't feel like posting that piece of news. I think it's a pretty cool item, plus it'd definitely piss Raph off

I guess it fits on the SD?

Bon boulot. Merci!

Yes. The fan is included. It plugs into your battery terminal on your receiver so when you turn your car on, the fan comes on. It's does a great job of putting air right where you need it and REALLY helps keep the brushes from burning up.

Thanks for the additional info, Tony.

That looks sweet. A few questions though, where can I buy it, will it fit a SD, and do you think it will help in 19t spec?

That "gizmo" is awsome! Ck. out the "Wow..New Technology" thread (not sure how to link?)--It is for "pre-race" cooling, start with a lower temp-end with lower temp! I already use a small 5volt fan for during a race, but I gotta have (or make) one of the "gizmos"

Yes it will definately help and will fit a SD (why not ?). As it's from Reedy, I bet any shop sellind reedy stuff can get it...

It draws nothing, something like 50 mAh, which means you loose, let's say, 3 seconds of runtime.

Besides, your brushes lasts longer as they don't get burned, and your comm also will need less skimming, and among the run your motor will be more consistant. You can only see good points about this.

It's not the same. The one you show has the fan blowing on the heatsink.

The Reedy one has the fan blowing on the brush hoods and comm, and it's much more efficient as that's where the most heat is generated.
