Air module casing and heat sink

Hi,

Is it okay to remove the Air Module’s outer casing and heat sink?
Would it pose a problem with respect to heat dissipation?
Has anyone tried it

No, you cannot operate without a heatsink
you can design a replacement that serves the same purpose however

I see. Would it be okay to provide active cooling with a fan if there is no heat sink?
I am interested in this primarily from a form factor and weight point of view. The heat sink seems to be close to half the weight of the air module.
