    electronics question

    Hey guys need some help asap, I took my boat out today, and drove it, but at the end it started going crazy, the steering servo was going wild and so was the acceleration one. Why do these continue to do this? I tried to dry them out, and dont want to turn them on till i find out the problem, Why are these things going wild? Thanks!

    My Vee did the exact same thing when the reciever and servos got some moisture in them. I removed the bottom plates and dried them out with a hair dryer on low heat (be careful not to apply enough heat to soften the plastic). The entire system operated like new. I have since water proofed all of the parts, except the on/off switch and not had any more problems with erratic servos.

    Try it, you'll like it.

    Get the stuff at hard ware stores that You dip your tools in to get better grip on and dip you servo up to the gear head. Make sure that you don't let it touch the gear on top or else it will slow down your servo speed.

    3m #270 is a sealer that one ESC builder uses (RC-Hydros) which is the best out there anyway.

    You can also use it on the radio but not on the freq chip.
