great idea to clean up those loose wires instead of clunky cable wrap and zip ties

Do you have a picture with the cable sleeving kit installed? How do you attach it around the cables? Will it fit a single wire or does it have to be a bunch of wires?

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Spiral Wrap

I use a product called Spiral Wrap, It looks like a clear plastic tube cut into a spiral. It comes in all different diameters from 4mm for single cables to 8mm for mutiple cables and larger. It's very cheap and comes in 5m lengths and can be purchased from many electronic stores and industrial electrical suppliers. Fantastic for keeping the heli tidy and safeguarding the cables from chaffing.

I use it all the time. It really is good gear, cheap, stops wires chaffing and I think black hides the wires although it is available in a few different colors. Just put a pic in my gallery.
I use heat shrink to tidy the ends up, also when you cut a piece to the required length, hold it over a small flame (night lite candle) just for a second then squeeze the end with your finger and thumb to stop the ends fraying.
You just have to make sure you get a big enough size so that when it is expanded it will go over your servo plugs.
