    Water, Servos and E-REVO

    Hi all!!

    After my third servo being scrap because of water, I'm asking : Do you think I can put the E-REVO servos in my AVALANCHEXP? (Are they compatible?)

    Why I ask? E-REVO's servos are edit :"water resistent" ... lol

    They are water resistent. Dunk the servo in water for a minute and work it back and forth. Same as the XL5 esc on the Slash, water resistent.

    RE: Water, Servos and E-REVO

    Here's a vid on waterproofing "regular" servos.. You can get the "plasti-dip" at HomeDepot or similar hardware type stores in the US..

    Yes the servos will work. You may need a new servo horn, but they will work.

    Servo horn: Plastic arm that attaches (via a single screw) to the servo.
