Noob question here:

I bought a used Noto with stock electronics. I've been driving for a few weeks now and I've never heard the fan come on once. I don't beat the crap out of it but my other Hobbywing XR8 g2 fan is on all the time. Is the Spektrum fan supposed to be on all the time or does it come on at a set temperature and I'm just not hitting it? Thanks.
 
Those stock fans suck! Probably broke.
 
Just to confirm, the stock fan should run all the time?
They’re quiet. Like really quiet since they don’t move much air. You said you don’t hear it so that makes sense. Rip the car around a bit and then pop the lid and see if it’s running.

Yes, it should be ON when you turn it on.

So it's probably dead as a doornail.
You should look into getting a 35mm to 40mm fan Adapter so you can install a much better Fan!
 
Darn, it's dead. I'm going to replace it then sell the esc/motor combo as I have a HW combo coming in. Any idea what a used 6s combo should sell for (with new fan)? Thanks everyone
 
Check the classifieds here.
Actually love those ESC way more than the HW, but your call.
You can simply buy a 30mm alu frame fan, just installed one today in mine, fan blade was broken.
Slight modification to the fan cover, but works just fine.
 
Replace the fan and bash on! Then you have a hobbywing spare. I have replaced so many esc fans... :cool:

35mm to 40mm Adapter (installed on Top of stock ESC casing.)

This is with the Casing Delete Raiser (if you want Maximum air flow.)

Keep the ESC as posted until or if it ever dies and get a good fan. Stock fans suck... Tex makes good adapters, and many to be found online. A good 40mm fan is what I recommend. Summer heat is coming.

I do not like the low profile 40mm fans removed those but here is a pic:

No running Radio Control tall 40mm fans that are 8.4v powered from the ESC. Super powerful

For road bashing I do use the 28 mm height fans as in the picture. They will not hold up on my bashers, too much mass in blades and fans, using the 10 mm height exclusively for jumps etc.
