    Sunk

    Well i had a very sad day today.
    My blast with a vxl in it and a seven cell battery sunk in the middle of my lake today. It flipped over in the middle and we swam for it but we were too late. It was probably 300ft out. and the water was absolutely freezing. i am so disappointed.

    A sad day indeed my sir. It was a valiant effort. Maybe under warranty? (optimistic)

    I sunk my first sail boat and from then on I learned the hard way to put foam or airbags in every available corner of the boat.

    You could use sealed ziplock bags.
