Default Good water proof servos

I just drown another servo!!! it was a HItec HS525 high speed for throttle. Some water always find its way in into the radio box. Which servo should I use that is water proof? I have a Hitec HS5955 for rudder that is water proof, but i do not need all that torque for the throttle.
Thanks.

Try a waterproofing spray instead. for the price of a cheap servo, you can do a lot of servos and recievers. I've been using Aeroplate from Aerotrend Products but there are other brands like Corrosion X and The Stuph among others that will do the job.
I've had radio boxes full of water, drained them out and ran right afterwards. Some of the Gas boaters use these products and don't even bother using a radio box.

Where do you buy this spray? Hobby shop or Home Depot?
Thanks

Most Hobby Shops can get it whether or not they know it. Aerotrend is better know for their silicone tuned pipe couplers.
Seeing how you're in Canada, try Peter Richards at www.welasercut.com as he sells one of the more popular brands.

you could try and fit a sealed [water tight box ]for the servos +receiver batt etc
i buy boxes for 3 dollars in malta from ashop that sells lighting fittings for houses he says these boxes are designed as joint boxes
there are even ones for 1 servo only but i prefer to fit all items in abox as for the rods i use bellows from graupner
