Default Apprentice Fuselage Holes

I have an Apprentice and have added an orange tape to the bottom of the fuselage in order to better judge orientation. However, I have begun to think the 3 round holes on the fuselage bottom might be for purpose of cooling. Should I uncover them? Thanks. Gary

Yes it's a good idea to promote air flow through the fuselage.

Yes, the holes are for cooling the ESC and battery. Cut the tape and open em up.
