Cut the heatshrink open over the top of the fins for better cooling. We had to do that with the early Align esc's... Finless has a video showing how to increase the air to the esc including redoing the heatsink mounting tape with a thermal adhesive.....

really I never even considered taping on the heatsink I just assumed it was held on with thermal compound. I bet I was the only one who used thermal compound on tailmotors though. I will be either cutting or buying an open esc next time I also guess thats why you TRIX guys have vents in the front of your canopy suck the air right out of the ESC.

Just another trix that we had to figure out... The early esc's sucked big time. They make a thermal tape for fastening heatsinks now or you can use the compound like a glue...
