  • Wet Running Outrunner

    I have been converting the GATO to brushless power and have successfully tested the motor and the ESC underwater-so far no detrimental effects noted. and this ESC appears to be VERY waterproof.
    Unfortunately my tub is too short and I ran out of seasonal temperate water-of course all the trimming gets thrown out , as this motor is much smaller and lighter then the brushed version.

    Bob,

    With all this we've been working on, eventually a water tight compartment can no larger than a cigarette box housing only the RX, BLM and AD2 aboard a simple servo gas boat using 12V SLA's. Regardless of boat size.

    Imagine my 1:48 LA with the only dry area the size of that! Certainly headed that way with my 1:96 boats!!
