    yeah, that was a good idea but i want to go more extreme, like in the sea (not submerged), i thought plasti dip will work but i dont know if range gona be the same and the batteries i have to change them lol

    Maybe just install rechargeable batteries and use the charging jack! I don't imagine plasti dipping would affect the range. Though it would be tought make sure the necessary buttons were still functional but waterproof.

    Does yours have the docking base? The tqi with docking base has what appears to me to be an input to charge the batteries on the back side.

    Only on the ones with the base can you buy a NIMh pack and plug it into where the AA battery pack goes

    My .02 cents

    You need a can of spray film di-electric. I spray this into my RC remote before I go out in the storm.

    After applying this, I have been in a torrential down pour for well over an hour and my remote never skipped a beat. Still works just fine. This is, imo, the best way to water proof electronic components without the hassle of plasti-dip and dry times.
