you mix it up and after removing the shrink wrap pour it all over in into the ESC, not on the heat sink though. Then take a heat gun and heat it up the epoxy thins out and most runs off but enough to waterproof it remains. Hang it over a paper plate untill it stops dripping.
You can find 3M DP 270 and Corrosion X Here http://www.offshoreelectrics.com/products.php?cat=79
I also do Fast Electric Boats that is where I learned that trick. I have a 36" fiberglass boat I made that does 50 mph. Video here [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5l_dtsMtSs[/media]Enjoy;
Nice Boat John it seems to bounce to much on the water, would plastic flexable trim tabs here, to help keep the nose down Take care and have fun, Chellie
