Does he do the waterproof mods for any other brands? I would get one for my Safari with no hesitation, as I can then use it on the beach in the summer, with no concern of getting the control box wet. Please let me know further details, as I'm interested, Sven. Great info!

Have one coming. The Ace 250-350 is very popular in Poland, guessing that is why they had produced these housings.

First concern are the connectors pictured, they are not waterproof. So I am assuming the you would have to install your own waterproof connectors on the housing and coil cable.

Will look it all over when it arrives, find a used 350 and put it in.......second reason for buying the housing is it may fit my PI circuit board and battery with a faceplate mod. If it fits, then I will also inquire about getting some without any faceplate touchpad holes drilled. Would solve finding the ideal box for my water units.

Well the above post with the video links probably will not work as they go thru a Russian server.

With a little bit of software options I was able to get links that will work for you guys

The Ace box arrived today from the Ukraine.
Looked it over, quality build, did not see any issues.
Comes with an extra sealing o-ring and silicone lube.

I originally bought the box to see if I can use it to house my PI's.
It will hold the circuit board and battery pack.
