A good way is to keep the servos away from the motor in water tight radio box, then you can run a pair of the sulliwan flex rods to connect the throttle and rudder linkage. Simple and clean looking, no need to rubberize your servos and all that sticky mess.

Pends on where your engine is located .
I have mounted the servos under the engine pod ... and some in front of and some in back of .
All depends on your engine pods location and type .

And FTR - not sure about " all that sticky mess" stuff that is being referred to ....
But , I use Corrosion X , which eliminates the need for a radio box ( and FTR - I am YET , to see one that is 100 per cent water proof . )
With the Corrosion X , you can literally take your servo(s) and HOLD them UNDER water WITHOUT a single glitch or flaw !
