    Waterproofing lot lipos

    Just converted my summit to a brushless system that is waterproof. What sort of precautions should I be taking for protecting the lipos in wet conditions?

    Ok I covered the two holes on each side underneath a layer of silicon around the doors nicely like a O-ring
    Now this depends if u are going to be pushing the depths or not if u are remove the air vent and make a price of planting to revolt and cover it ?

    Well also I have one set o hard case lipos and all I had to do to them was rus a lil silicon around the wire output and they were the best until they coped a beating in the rustler now they just cut out all the time whoops lol but this was not from water !
    Some brands do make water proof lipos but either way it's not that hard to throw them in a ziplock bag?

    They wont. Use a balloon, a zip tie and maybe some liquid tape to seal the end 100%.
    Brushless 19/62 SPC 8.2 It's not a Tekin or a MM
