    I will install 3 Monster Moto Shild. Since they are relatively cheap and space is available, I will block one per engine. Since I have read in the forum that you can burden them so much and they should not be so hot.

    And if one should break, I quickly have a replacement ..... :)

    As a platform for the Ardurino and Monster Moto, I use a wooden plate and as a carrier for the fan unit I use M6 threaded rods.

    So I can adjust it later in the height and adjust the cooling something, .... DSC_3753.JPG
