-===== Construction =====

-[[:​searchwing-waterproof-glue|]] 
- 
-==== Overview ==== 
- 
-{{:​waterproof_overview.jpg?​400}} 
- 
-These are the sections to close on the fuselage. 
- 
-==== Bulkhead to separate the motor ====

- 
-==== Closing holes ==== 
- 
-The so glued model had some holes to fill / close. I used thin plexi-glas. Best way to glue them was hot glue, as it can also fill little holes or irregularities in thickness.

- 
-I used the same technique also on other parts. 
- 
-===== Sealing connections and small holes ===== 
- 
-Using a good tape can close all kind of connections and other small or thin holes. I used "3m Blenderm"​ - a waterproof and flexible tape:

- 
-One other option is hot glue - as in this example:

-===== Waterproofing the servos ===== 
- 
-there are 2 interesting articles on Instructables on this topic: 
- 
-[[https://​www.instructables.com/​id/​Water-proofing-a-Servo/​|https://​www.instructables.com/​id/​Water-proofing-a-Servo/​]] [[https://​www.instructables.com/​id/​Waterproof-your-servo-motors/​|https://​www.instructables.com/​id/​Waterproof-your-servo-motors/​]] (if you want to follow this one, dont forget the glitter on your finger nails) 
- 
-1. Make the housing waterproof 
- 
-* I used "​Curil",​ a standard sealing compound. * Open the servo and put the sealant an all touching surfaces * also put sealant to the cable, where it leads through the housing 
- 
-{{:​servo_sealant.jpg?​400}} 
- 
-2. Insert a O-Ring under the horn 
- 
-* remove the horn * add a 1mm thick o-ring * add some lubrication. I used "CRC Multilube"​ - attention - lubrication has to be compatible with the rubber of the sealant. Don't use silicon rings with silicon lubricant. * screw the horn back on

- 
-==== Test it... ==== 
- 
-- submerge in water while it moves - no bubbles should emerge
