Cbear,

Yes, I said give the rudder & elevator servos a shot or two - but that doesn't imply that one should spray the entire brick.

Regarding corrosion - the CC is most definitely not suited for flying off saltwater. As is the case with everything when you live on the coast - corrosion is a concern. However - many tens of thousands of people fly RC in coastal areas. It just takes a bit more preventative maintenance. BTW - there is no salt in regular fog or morning dew, as the salt stays behind when saltwater evaporates. I suppose that at only a half-mile away, you still see some wind-whipped salt-fog, though. Do you have corrosion problems with cars, outdoor antennas, etc. in your neighborhood? If not, you will be just fine when flying on wheels. If so, you may want to clean the servos more often.
