    Use a splitter on the esc fan power output and cover it with heatshrink tube, works perfect!

    Link for splitter:

    And looks like this:

    So have I got it wrong, connecting my fan to the 'B' port on my rx?

    Thanks buddy. Mine's been working fine but I was worried I may have been overloading the port...

    Incidentally, with a 14t pinion and on 4S I'm still getting really high motor temps - even with the C4 - and a really warm battery, too. Any idea why? I'm not driving at WoT all the time and I'm out of ideas.

    If it's already hot out side it don't take much for them temps to jump up. So it may not be anything your doing wrong....or anything you can help lol. You can also eliminate what the problem is by removing the motor and checking for resistance along the drive line and such.?
    Have you check you mesh lately?
