It is a new optional part...you can add it yourself:

Wire it up for 7.2V and you will like it even more ! The output on the GTB fan plug is 6V.

I have all my fans wired to the ESC battery/power cap wires (7.2V) with a seperate switch and a "special" fan power distributor :




BTW, the fan is from MuchMore (just trying to make sure everyone realizes that we do not sell them with our own branding). We try to keep a good inventory of them.

Hi Guys,

The new rotor should have more natural drag brake in the motor, so less is needed from the ESC setting. This helps reduce both motor and ESC temps.

Email me for some details on wiring up your fans for 7.2. There is a basic trick of changing just One Wire of the fan. It's actually shockingly simply. Just take the RED lead from your fan, and connect it to the BLACK lead on the Switch. This will provide the fans with 7.2 volts when the switch is turned on. No need for extra anytying that way. Just the simply moving of a wire.

Additionally, we've done a bit of testing with "multiple" power cap trans modules on the GTB and found that 2 in parrallel is good for reducing Cap temps quite a bit, and slightly reducing ESC temps.

I know, MORE caps, great right..... Its not necessary, but it does help. Any help is a good thing.

How much life are you getting out of the fan, running it at 7.2V?

I've got a couple in the pixbox, ready for when the GTB fan dies.
But, mine is the larger model.. 30x30 which seems to be thinner.

Here's mine mounted:

The one on top of the ESC is the same fan I have been using for over a year at 7.2V!

Marcos.

The picture was taken whilst I was waiting for a new topdeck to arrive. I was going to put in some confusing quip about chassis flex and lower lap times......

Thanks for the tip Charlie - will definately try it..Red wire to black switch. Black wire to battery.

Is it okay to use the V4/V8 series of caps instead of two parallel novak caps?
Has anyone tried it?
