I robbed mine out of my trinity real time 2 discharge tray. I hardly ever use the fan when traying cells.

I have this one mounted on my TC3 on the nerf wings. Pushes a LOT of air, no battery problems either. Significantly dropped my motor temp.

Radio Shack doesnt carry such a fan, according to the two I went to. Not even through the Corporate ordering system they have.

Speedie - Try calling Jay Tronics in Rockford, IL. They have them there, not sure if you can have them ship some up to you?

Expensive!
the best fans and least expensive I found at All electronics.
for 40mm 5vdc for under $3.00 each. you can get 3 fans for the price you pay for the orion's.

Although that fan is only half of the speed of the Orion fans...
