Hi All
I Just received my Esky HBFP today, I also ordered the motor heat sinks however they didn't send instructions with them as to how to install them. smiley-signs093
Are they glued on or epoxyed? Any help will be greatly appreciated. smileysigns153

I don't know which one's you have, but the one's I have just snap on. You really need to unsolder the tail motor wires to put that one on correctly. You don't neeed any adhesive.

Like Donnie said they just snap on. They will be kind of loose and almost seem like they'll fall off but it won't.

If you want it a bit tighter you could snap it on with the main motor wire pinched in between. (Not sure if it's recommended since it gets hot......that's how my HBFP V2 came from the factory)

As for the tail motor you need to wiggle it in or gently pull on the motor wires to create slack........GENTLY orange54

The heat sinks are held in place by tension. I recommend on the main motor to install it from the top downward. You won't stretch it open as far as you would by trying to put it on horizontally. You are less likely to break it this way.

Just a question... When installing a heat sink on these motors, is there any need or benefit to adding any heat sink compound between the heat sink and the motor?

I know it is a REQUIREMENT for elctronics, but not sure if the benefit exceeds the price of the goop.

I don't think it is necessary as long as the heatsinks that you are using fit reasonably snug. I've got heatsinks on my HBFP and I've never used any type of adhesive.

Talking about motors... I am not skilled with welding wires... Does it exists any video about how, where, and what we need to weld in case we need to replace a HBFP motor?

It will be very helpull for us the noob than we are not skilled in electronic parts and weld them.
