    waterproof rx?

    Is there a way to waterproof the recievrr? It seems like it barely fits in the box and everytime I have to force it shut I'm afraid ill pinch a wire or something.

    You could coat the entire thing in liquid tape.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    You can take the case apart and fill it with dielectric grease, once it's back together put a nice blob of it where the servos plug in then plug them in accordingly. I used to do this all the time before they started coming out with the waterproof receiver boxes.

    the flysky radios have tiny receivers, they can be mounted in place of the 2nd steering servo if you wanted the space, or it will fit inside a battery box with the VXL ESC. If you truly want it waterproof I strongly recommend the dielectric grease airmaxx23 mentioned, since the flysky receivers are $7 I just carry an extra instead of waterproofing lol.
