I build things that fly (sometimes)
Life has been keeping me busy (as usual) but I have continued the repairs. I've cleaned up the front end in preparation for the new motor install, opened up the cowling to allow for more airflow, added a pair of small air intakes on either side of the motor, and just wrapped up construction of the new spinner and backplate to accomodate the 22x10 prop. I've added a pair of recesses to the backplate that allign behind the propeller. My hope is that these will allow at least some additional airflow into the cowling. The fact that I won't be heavily taxing the motor, combined with the oversized ESC (with its own fan) leads me to think that I will be just fine in terms of cooling.
