Cool
water proof 450

Just water proofed my heli (hk450) to be able to fly in a torrent of water, bu covering the receiver and ubec openings (yes i let the ariel come out) covered the gyro switch openings, battery cooling openings but will still probably water proof the battery to be sure, and all connectors that could possibly short, the servos dont need it, as they are basicly water proof unless submerged, and all of this was done with scotch tape =D lol see how it flies in the rain on friday.

Thats all of them , basicly the tape is every were water might be able to get into some electronics through any opening, the sides are there to stop abit of water getting into the motor, as it is a typoon motor and has the fan on the bottom that sucks through air, even though the bl motor can run under water,the less the better, and the esc was just covered to stop water getting in through the ends of the heatshrink covering
