Waterproof. Out of the box, nothing that I am aware of is "water proof". "Water resistant", yes. Splash-proof is more like it.
There are ways to make things even more water resistant, but generally, water and electricity don't mix well. So I would not go mud bogging or fording streams, unless you've done a lot more research on how to protect your expensive electronics. The most sensitive is the receiver. There are water resistant receiver boxes, and some guys just put them in a balloon. But I don't like the idea of getting the battery and it's connector wet. Most of the trail-scalers use BRUSHED motors that don't mind getting wet, but I don't know what if any brushless motors can take it.
