Water spray on servo

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I am thinking of installing a servo on one of my pontoons for the rudder and there may be a little water spray that comes in contact with the servo. Is there some kind of grease I can put on the head of the servo so water canít seep in? or should I just put a shield over the servo?

Did you hear about the man that fell into the upholstery machine? He's fully recovered.

Re: Water spray on servo


These guys used to do trade shows using a TV and a tank of water. They'd strip off the back of the TV, dunk it in CX, and let it dry. Then They'd toss it into a tank of water, plug it in, and have it running all weekend I bought some of this a while back off of another guy who picked it up in Orangeville (I believe) at a marina. Take the case off the servo (or ESC, or Rx, or - you get the idea) and dunk it (we got the pump spray bottle - I just poured it into a wide bottle to make dunking easier) and let it dry. Pretty simple, and great stuff.
Mine is not to reason why; I just wire them up to fry...I mean Fly!
