Default MR3000 Surface/Marine RX



Hi Guys,

Just wondering if anyone has had a problem with these RX's when they have got them wet?
I had a boat sink on me a few week ago... Got everything back up and running within hours of it going down!!

Just come to use the RX and it wont work... When the RX went under it was in a baloon there was a drop of water in there but nothing major really!!! The problem is it was salt water.
The RX says its Water Resistant... So does that mean its ok when its raining....

Jack

Salt water is virtually impossible to protect against. The problem is most likely due to corrosion in the antenna (yes, inside, the ends are not sealed) and/or the RF connectors at the circuit board.

Would corrosion in the antenna wires stop it from going on? It also seems to warm up and no led comes on. I'm guessing water has got onto the board somewhere. I've ordered another anyway.

Just wondering if an ar7000 will be ok on the water? I have a few of these but never tryed them in my boats.
It means I can get out at weekend!!!

It depends on your transmitter. If you're using an aircraft tx, yes, because they support both AR and MR receivers. If you're using a pistol grip, then no, because they do not support AR receivers, only SR and MR.
