Hitec has just released waterproof servo motors! These servos can function while immerse in water and come in two versions: Micro and High Torque. Thanks to these servos, is is now very easy to create underwater robots or vehicles since the usual waterproofing hassle is no longer required. The Micro and High Torque motors are available for pre-order at RobotShop and stock should be arriving soon.
