How necessary are heat sinks on AON or Medusa 3400/3500 motors in Trex 450 3 cell lipo 3d setups?

IMO not critical depending on pinion use, but sure helps in significantly reducing motor heat. I recommend use!

I started with one Align heat sink, and when the summer heat set in last year and the motor temps soared, I decided to experiment by adding a second heat sink, which dropped the motor temps 28F degrees! I was hoping for 5 or 10.

Anyway, there's a description of what I did in my "T-Rex Tips" document:
