waterproofing control box

Post by CRLSrov » Wed May 01, 2019 11:44 am

Dear Administration,

After reading the official rule book, I was wondering if it would be permissible to fill the electronics box of our Ranger Class R.O.V. with a biodegradable mineral oil to water proof the box?

Unfortunately all use of mineral oil needed to be approved by the MATE Competition technical manager (me) by April 1st. If you were not the one team I did approve, unfortunately you cannot use mineral oil at this point.

Good luck.
