CrossionX

Just got the Corrosion X today. Gona dip the AS3X Board in it and stick it in a bowl full of watter for couple days to see if this stuff realy works. I will post what happens.

Good plan. Or you could send me the board, and I'll confirm that corrosion x stuff is worthless and handle the disposal free of charge....

Modified UMX Carbon Cub With Hitec Servoes

Here is how i put the Hitec 35 HD Servoes on it. I put the new AS6410NBL board in it and it works awsome. If u get one of these boards make sure u get the usb programmer too ur gona need it. PN. SPMA3060

Ok so i dipped the board in corrosionx for about 15minuts pulled it out set in on a papper towl and let it set for a day then i put it in a bowl full of water and let it set in the water completley submerged in water for another day. I then pluged in 4 servoes and the motor then the battery and put it in the water with it pliged in and all servoes and the motor workd with it still submerged in water.

Now you need to run the test using my IRON rich pond water..

Was that tap water, filtered water, distilled water, Bob's iron-rich pond water, salt-water, or???

It is quite common for low-voltage circuitry to survive submersion in fresh water - at least for awhile. The effects of corrosion (if any) may not show up until later. The real test will be how well the electronics hold up a month or two down the road.

BTW - people have posted videos of UM aircraft still functioning while submerged - even without any protection. A notable one was the clip of a UM plane 'returning to shore' under power after 'landing' in a swimming pool. It flew just fine afterward, but it would be interesting to know if there was any long-term damage.

why do u all gota make things sound so dificult. It doesnt matter cause its not like we try to watterproof these little boards so that we can leave them in a pond.
the corrosionX is gona keep it from shorting out when watter gets on that little board. Its not like the watter is gona stay on the board permenatly. I simply wanted to see if it worked and the bottom line is that it does what it says

Well it just might work with watter but will it work with water, like pond water I don't have any watter to fly off of..

Sounds awesome, where did you get this miracle product? My problem with water is when Its early in the morning and dew heavily covers the lawn. I hate wet feet but i love the crisp stillness of the morning air, batteries seem to last for hours.

And never had a problem after drying them out.

But when flying the CX2 on floats on my pond at the cottage with all the iron in it I burned out two servos and the RX.. Next time I flip it or try flying the CC I'll either try your way or wash off everything with clean water/alcohol before drying it off..

After removing a lot of my dead Ash trees and making the pond a little bigger at the cottage I now might have the room to try flying the Champ and CC of my pond..

Because science is difficult. If science was easy - everyone would be doing it - and they'd get the correct answer right away most of the time. But that's not how it works. First off, an 'n' of one is not a valid sample size from which to draw any meaningful conclusion. As Bob & I have noted - it is common for unprotected boards to survive a dunking in fresh water without damage. Therefore, it is entirely possible that the brick would have survived just fine without treatment. BTW - making electronic circuits & test gear survive in hostile environments happens to be a specialty of mine. I design things that have to live in a 1.5 Siemens per meter saline solution while being exposed to a 3 Tesla static magnetic field, a 100 Tesla per second gradient magnetic field, and over 25,000 watts of pulsed RF @ 128 MHz. I also design tests to determine the biocompatability of various materials. So I have a bit of experience in this area.

Oh - and I do use CorrosionX on many things in the lab and at home. However, I would never use it on these open-frame linear servos. One does not use a dielectric on the resistive strip or wiper arm of any variable resistor.

ok i live in tennessee and everytime i ever got an electronic devise wet here in the pond lake or sink it went poof. the water here aint purified unless a priest does it

One of the demonstrations that the maker of Corrosion X have done is to totally treat a television, submerse it in water and turn it on. Picture a bit blurry from the water but the TV functioned just fine. This was even with an older CRT TV.
