Default Motor Cooling Scoop

I looked around and couldn't find one. Can anyone tell me where I can pick one up?

The reason I want a simple scoop is to minimize the weight gain, and not add another electrical component to draw voltage. I've seen a few heat sink/fan combos, and that pic is of a nice setup. But I'd just like to have a simple air deflector. I'm only running in 19t class, so I imagine it doesn't generate the same heat a mod motor does...

i finally got the balls to open up my servo and shorten the wire/lead. braided it too since it was too short to heatshrink.

and found some pretty cool heatshrink so i was about to clean up my esc wires

Motor air scoops are also good for collecting garbage in your motor. I tried a home made one years ago.
