Just a tip to pass along. I have found a simple method to cool the motors of my XRB. Drilled 3, 1/4" holes in the truss near the mounting plate on top side. Also 4, 1/4" holes in the canopy right above the motor. Now the motors are not scalding hot to the touch after a 20 minute flight. Seems to work pretty well.

Heatsink

I'm using some motor heatsink's I got from, http://www.geocities.com/rickyblaze_rc/heatsink.html $7.50 USA, works great, I got 20 min of flight time and I can touch the motor after with my finger (bad way to test the heatsink to say the least however, ouch!)

It is what it is...
