Hi guys,
I found the perfect upgrade servo for the WPL C34, exact same dimensions, digital, full metal gear, same servo arm, nearly twice as strong:

JX PDI-2506MG Metal Gear Digital Servo






Full metal gear:




JX-PDI-2506MG left, stock WPL C34 servo right:




Stock C34 servo arm left, one of the JX PDI-2506MG servo arms right






Please watch my test video:

Nice looking servo. I guess it's not waterproof though since I don't see any o-rings anywhere.

Well, the original C34 servo is not waterproof, either ;-)

Guess it will be hard or impossible to find 17 g (normal WPL and Co. servo size) or 25 g (C34) servos that are waterproof.

Anyway, making a servo waterproof is no big deal, if you really want a waterproof servo.


But if this 1/12-1/16 crawler market will grow, maybe there will be waterproof servos released in future, as there are for the 1/10 crawler market. Nevertheless, those WPL, MN, JJRC models are no hardcore crawlers, they are nice, cheap toys that give a lot of options for upgrading and scaling...

Highly recommended metal upgrade available now.
I did already break the Plastik link base of the WPL C34KM. They should already have equipped the KM version with metal link bases, not with plastic ones.

Here you go:
