Help!
Waterproofing rc submarine??

Hi!

How are rc submarines and rc boats waterproof where the propeller shaft is??

I understand the motor is inside the body but the shaft goes out of the body. How can I make it waterproof so that the water doesn't travel along the shaft and gets inside the body of the rc submarine/boat?

Thanks a lot!

There are many vendors that sell shaft seals.
Check out these
http://www.modelluboot.de/
You will need to navigate to the page by going to seals > shaft

There are other vendors out there, I am sure, but this should get you started.
