you could try running some duct tape around the join in the 2 halves of the chassis and across the top of the electronics, just be sure to be careful arond the ESC as the heatsimks can get hot

When you want to service it you would simple pul the tape off the chassis and wipe away the left over sticky stuff (if there is any) with some eucalyptus oil, I've never had a problem with it destroying the plastic.
