Default Plastidip the whole 3in1?

Anyone ever dipped the whole board to protect components?

That would make it difficult to work on if the need arose and it does from time to time.

Just a thought would the 3 in 1 need to get rid of some heat and if it was coated in PlastiDip could it cause a problem by not letting items cool.

Maybe have a fet blow but I don't think anything on there will build up enough heat to make it have a problem! Not shur about the brushless setup.
I know it will run under water so why not.

Neither do I. You can use it to make a matte black finish on any part of your car though.

i don't get it why ppl are using so much tape to glue the ESCs vibefree to the 3in1, i always use very thin doubletape and it works very nice and plastidip could be another nice looking method without using 3-6mm tape, but that's only me i don't like fatty setups
