Go ahead, get me wet!

Everybody likes to get wet, but this is usually a super-scary thought when it comes to the electronics in your radio control machine. Hitec has some of your worries covered with their new waterproof servos that have what it takes to keep your RC rig watertight! With high torque, dual ball bearings and metal gears, these digital waterproof servos have the industry’s first IP67* rating; ranking them among the most durable and reliable servos for wet conditions. Whether you are racing in the rain or scale-crawling through a rocky-river, the HS-5646WP will dependably keep your mind at ease. You’ll know you’re good to play with your car in the bathtub when it’s sporting some blue Hitec servos!
