At Ircha yesterday, I noticed one of the large ESCs in their booth had a cooling fan attached (looked like an Ice or Edge ESC). It looked like the fan was built into a different plastic housing on the ESC, replacing the standard plastic top. I really wish I would have asked but everyone seemed pretty busy.

Does Castle offer a cooling fan that replaces part of the plastic casing around the Ice/Edge ESCs? I know there are plenty of aftermarket fans I could rig up to the ESC, just wondering if there is one that is actually built specifically for these ESCs.

There are many small 12V computer fans that can be had really cheap. Try your local computer repair shop. Just attach it to the ESC with a couple dabs of silicon glue and power it from your receiver battery, I doubt they draw much power. You could probably even plug it into an unused receiver port.

Even though the fans are usually 12V, they will just run a little slower.
