I have the wire that I use to charge my battery running parallel to one of my gyro wires. It is running parallel for about 8 inches. I was just curious if this can cause any interference with the gyro's performance? In the pic below, you can see the female end of the wire sticking out by the gyro. Any advice is appreciated.

Not had a charge lead running along another lead that far before, but all my helis have the charge lead going along about 4-5 inches along other wires and I have never had a problem.

P.S. do you like red by any chance ??

I run my battery cord back along the other battery wires from the switch until I have a clear opening for the plug.. That leaves me about 3 inches parallel with the other battery wires and about 3 or 4 inches out to charge. I use an old plug from a Y-harness attached to the frame to hold the battery charge plug.. It works..

There will be no current flow in the charge lead during flying so I don't think it could cause any interference even if it wanted to.

Sorry, I love the bling. When I put on the head, I only had woodies. I have carbons on it now. The is actually a lot more bling on it now. What can I say, it is a sickness!

I would have a least used photoshop to make carbon blades.

I am also running my charge wire parallel with the servo wire all the way and never had problems.

I don't personally have my charge wire running down any control signal wires, but I can't imagine where the interference would come from.

I'm guessing that since in the "on" position, the switch electrically disconnects the charge connector. The only time there would be anything going on with the charge wire would be when you are charging and I have yet to see anyone fly at the same time they are charging!

Going along with everyone else, I see absolutely nothing wrong with your setup.
