    For this project, the plane has a very simple theme... let me know if you guys figure it out!
    We ran with the same theme as the website logo and turned that taxi cab scheme into a custom 3d monster!

    Looks really good in the sun, Gary. How does the cooling work on this one? It doesn't look like there is much in the way of air going into the cowl?

    I put some scoops to redirect the air from the two side holes directly onto the motor, but I'll still have to keep an eye on temps, especially since I'm using the 4315-480 with a 16x8, (essentially max performing the motor). I fly all my airplanes with the Spekturm TM1000 telemetry module, and I always install the thermocouple on the motor base plate behind the bell, so I can monitor the in-flight temps.
