    I like this style

    Best blend of mass, surface area and airflow with the space available IMO.

    Iím partial to the dynamite 1/10 motor fan. Itís not flashy being a plastic case around the 36mm can, but its plastic construction is durable, and comes wired to go on any open channel on the receiver so it doesnít take up the esc fan connector.

    If I recall correctly the stock esc tend to heat up before the motor so having the esc fan connector reserved for the esc fan allows maximum cooling of the esc.

    I'm not a great fan of plastic fan unit because it does not absorb and transfer any heat from the motor, in my opinion it better have an aluminum unit which will act like a heat sink and will work in conjunction with the fan to provide a better heat dissipation.



    This unit absorb motor heat a allows the fan to flow the air directly on the motor.

    This fan provide a RPM speed of about 28K and is made from aluminum which act like a heat sink.

    The problem is that the seven blades fan unit has thinner and less wider blades than the five blades fan and it tends to break easily during impact. Also with a five blades unit it will be more resistant in case that a pebble enters into the fan.
