Kid TT-01, the problem with the 12v fans is they do not run all that well when plugged into the receiver. They really need 12v to work well and spin fast enough to provide enough cooling to be effective. The only way to get them to work a little better is to solder the wires from the fan, straight to the battery when you solder the ESC wires on, but if you dont solder your packs in, thats out of the question.

If you want to Run a fan or two, get the Novak fans or the Much more fans, they are 5v rated and they spin a lot faster and are a lot more effective. You Dont have to use the Novak or MuchMore fans, but its hard to find 5-6v fans of that size in the electronic stores.

Hope this helps.

Here is the cheapest one I have found that is rated for 5volts which it is ok to run on the reciever as it only puts out 6v...

Now for a more expencive one but I found to be more efficient one is this one...

Hope this helps....
These both are designed to run off your reciever....
The latter one does come ready to plug in where as the first one you have to wire it up..

Advanced Racing Components also sells a fan for onboard cooling. It is a high flow 5v fan and retails for $15.95. I comes with a connector, and the fan housing has been contoured to reduce weight. You can, e-mail them at [email protected] for more info.
