I want to install an inflow blower since blowing cold
air will put more through than pulling warm air out
the other end. The only issue is that I have to be
careful to not short out the motor leads unless there
is some hi-temp plastic I can make a cowling with. I
know I need a brushless (no spark) fan since the
battery pack is near by. I also should probably draw
the air from somewhere other than over the batteries.

This is an awesome list. The energy here is much like
one of the open source software lists I belong too.
Thank you for suggesting I join.
