Hi Ido, I bought a small universal conector that plugs into the reciever from a local hobby shop for $2.50. It has only about three inches of wire to solder to the fan wire, but the fan wire has too much wire, which you'll want to cut off some of the excess probably. So, solder the two fan wires to the two connector wires, use heatshrink, and just plug it into the reciever (if you have a channel to spare, otherwise, I'm not sure what you should do).
I've done this myself only recently. Therefore, I'm just learning the benefits of using the fan. What I've observed so far is this; When it is hot outside, without the fan the motor has run up to 161 degrees. With the fan it still runs up to 140 degrees, but it cools off at a much faster pace if you leave the fan running when the battery is too dead to fly the heli. Basically, I leave the heli on (which means the fan keeps running) and drink a soda for a few minutes before turning off the power and unhooking the used battery and hooking up the next pack for flight. If you hold a temp gun to the motor, you will see the temperature drop fairly quickly. But, last night, I flew the heli when it wasn't hot outside and the temperature after one battery pack was only 115 degrees, which is great. So, here by St. Louis, it's very humid in the summer and it appears that the effectiveness of the fan rely's on the environment at the time of flight. I think your making a good choice with Hacker brushless, later, Steve.
