    Roll over

    Just wandering if the spartan rolls over is going to
    Flood the electronics or is there something a guy
    Can do to prevent filling with water in a roll over

    I dont have a Spartan or a Blast but you could probably do something with an o-ring to make a seal to keep out water.

    Taping the hatch for every run is the easiest way to help seal out water on an RC boat.

    I use clear hockey tape, you can also use clear or colored electrical tape.

    The Spartan is a bit tough to tape at the stern because of the hatch "vent" tabs, but it can be done with a bit of effort.

    Even with taping, in a high speed flip, the hatch can eject and flood the hull. If the components are submerged, you can usually recover by removing the receiver, servo, esc and motor and drying them in a plastic bag with a cup or two of rice for a couple three days.
