Plastidip it works and you can waterproof an esc like a castle with a heat sink you just have to take it apart.

If you can take the case apart you can throw some liquid electrical tape in there, probably would void the warranty though.

I personally don't like running in the wet anyhow. It ruins bearings, rusts parts, binds everything.

Liquid tape stays sticky I wouldn't suggest that unless you want it all over your stuff.
