I just recovered my Parkzone J-3 Cub and my Wattage Decathlon from the forest they disappeared into last August. The balsa is a throwaway.My question is; What can I expect from my servos,esc, motors,receivers the wires and connectors? Does rust completely render a component inoperable?

Depending on how wet everything got, and whether it was wet the entire time will dictate if they still work or not. I'm sure corrosion has well set in by now. I'm sure some or maybe even all the components may still work. But for how long, and when will they quit working? I guess you will have to ask yourself what one of your models is worth to you, or how much of a risk your willing to take by endangering someone if they decide to quit while in flight.
