Ahoj Kocka, beautiful action shot of your Falcon. It's a rarity seeing female flying RC jets, keep it up! In regards to your ESC, place it in the position to get some air flow over it, which often needs some mods or simply create some air scoops to get air over it also for your battery if you are concerned.

those jet vents for cooling esc and battery ,yes I see your point because I have done this with prop planes even though they do not get as hot as a jet set up., what if I should run some soda straws down the front nose to the ESC area and the Battery?

Made up air scoops for batt. and ESC cooling, note the air exit at the rear above my ESC.


Extra cheater on the belly for more cooling of ESC and Batt.
Forget about drinking straws, it wouldn't have any cooling effect!!! No idea where your ESC is mounted, but if you are concerned about running it hot place it in the position where part of its heat sink is exposed to the air intake or exhaust outlet. It might take some foam surgery and re-wiring. Small air scoops or cheater hole is another alternative, as encl. pics.
