    Thanks for the wealth of replies Guys, so helpful and comprehensive. I have some JB Marine Weld so definitely sounds the way to go. Also appreciate the information on receivers. Once again thanks to you all, Cheers Spence.

    Also, roughing up the hull around where the tube goes through helps, especially fiberglass, ABS, other slick materials. Clean with a solvent like alcohol and dr well.

    Epoxy resin or JB weld and make sure you scratch the tube with rough sandpaper

    Epoxy resin for sealing the prop tube... I use JBWeld for that and much more. Some resins/epoxies don't paint well
    JB is the king of two part epoxies (at least fo me).

    JBKwick is very good but I take advantage of the longer cure time wit JBWeld. (I also get it the larger tubes, saves a lot of money.)

    Thanks Colin.

    I don't have 27 MHz or 40 MHz transmitters (now they are all 2.4 GHz, less affected by disturbances). I had them but they were toys.
    But I ask you: could a capacitor in parallel and/or inductors in series have been useful for filtering out high disturbing frequencies?
    I'm talking about brushed motors.

    Alessandro, just noticed your comments on the rc interference, old 27mhz and 40 mhz were prone to interference from motors, and also static interference.
    But this can be eliminated by earthing the motor body to the stuffing tubes.
    Cheers Colin.
