Wow, looks nice.  Let us know if the motor stays cooler and lasts longer.

Well I just made a test fly with my modified cooling fins motor and sure it runs much more cooler than before.

With the stock cooling fins you can't touch the motor after a 6 minutes flight for more than a second with out feeling burned but with my cooling fins you can keep your fingers on the motor or cooling fins as much as you want.

Now the tail motor is much more cooler than the main motor!

Still only time will tell if the motor last longer than before but I hope so.

I did a dry break in of 3 hours before installing the new motor with modified cooling fins on my heli.

This may sound weird but after I installed my Telebee HH gyro my tail motor actually runs cooler. Before after about 10 minutes of flight my tail motor temps were 200*F and after the gyro 10 minute flight the motor is 150F. I guess the HH is holding the tail so my input isn't over working the tail motor I dunno but it does run cooler.

Final report: the tail motor lasted for 83 flights with my cooling fins, after that I decided it was time for me to move to a much better heli.
Now I am flying a Trex 500, so far so good! I am starting to fly some 3D successfully, here is a pic of my newest heli, hope you like it.
Cheers.
