What's the prop for is it to give you a bit of side thrust. Cheers

The motor is aircooled, I hope it works but it might not 🙂

I wouldn't chance air cooling this motor that way.
Firstly you are guessing that the electric motor and propellor can provide enough airflow for adequate cooling.
Secondly, you are relying on an electric motor and battery in a damp and hot enviroment.
This not a reliable system in my opinion.
Short circiuts and poor connections could be a problem if corrosion occurs.
A cool clamp made of slightly flattened copper pipe with an inlet and oulet is the easiest solution.
It is wrapped around the cyinder head. Cheers
