He is not kooling down his battery, he is connecting the wires to the battery to make the Fan run.!

I run mine off the receiver. Works great and does not affect servo or personal transponder.

I run mine off the speed battery connections. I see many people running 2x25mm fans on the cars, but I'm sure they don't realise that its would be far better to use 1x40mm fan.

The advantages with a single 40mm fan over 2x25mm fans:

  • Single 40mm fan draws less milliamps
  • Single 40mm fan is lighter
  • Single 40mm fan seems to have more air flow
