Why don't you use a little bit of liquid tape on the exposed wires and that way you don't fry them.No i haven't tested the name brand stuff.. but there are plenty of tests of the waterproof name brand Motors and escs on youtube. Im sure the Hobbywing/power is resistant. I go through puddels, but im also sure it will fry if u submurge it. I have fried some esc fans because the wires are exposed on the side of the hobbybrand stuff. big puddels with my rc18T killed the fan. I would say a 10th scale would be harder to kill because of clearence. However it is pretty easy to make sure your stuff is waterproof. Though i wouldnt recomend brushless for going through streams but you could if you slapped a few layers of liquid rubber over it. just follow squirel rc on youtube for the steps to making it tight. Youll gain some heat out of that mod so you may want to gear down a tooth if you are in a warm area.
Besides that the only issue i have had from hobby power is some of my esc to reciever cables became loose and started shorting out. But that was user error from strapping them down too hard. Not the product.
Im going to start testing my 11.1v in my arrma for heat and longevity on the esc and motor. Its only a 1300mah so ill take my findings from the little power and apply them for the real test driving like a jerk on 3s for 45min plus
