Default 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

Nice! I'll try and give news if they works okay

I don't really mind for the torque... I just need them to do the job :TURNLEFT/RIGHTand don't scrap after a few drop of water 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.

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.
