Hey guys:

I just bought a used servo and it came with this blue stuff on the lead. What is this stuff and where can I buy it? I love neat wires and this looks like the ticket!! Also, could it rub the wire insulation and over time possibly short out a servo or any other bad things that I should know about?

Thanks,

Jeff

There are several online places to get it. http://www.cableorganizer.com is one of them. You should be able to find an electrical supply house near by, too. I have one about 15 minutes from my house that stocks it.

Ready heli which advertises here on RR has it. Do a search on their site for wire wrap.

BTW The wrap also works great on protecting fuel line from chafing damage

Wire Wrap

Dr._Doom2
I have used this stuff on all three of my heli's. Rap 90,50 and Trex 450.
When you check out ReadyHeli you will see it's available in different sizes. It comes with some heat shrink tubeing to secure the ends.
The 1/4" is ideal for single servo wires and the 1/2" is ideal for grouping several wires together. Either when they are wrapped or unwrapped. Also notice that this sufff is available in a stainless steel sleeving. Ideal for fuel lines. I have even utilized it on all my 28 to 40 percent planes.
Now as to your question. "Could it rub the wire insulation and over time possibly short out a servo or any other bad things ?"
Well, the idea of useing this wrap to prevent that exact thing from happening. I am not aware of any other bad things with it's use.
Except maybe the steel sleeving. I suppose it could possibly rub or
vibrate on carbon fiber frames and potentially cause radio interference. But I haven't heard of it or experienced it. I have used the "poly" wrap on my heli fuel lines for the exhaust pressure line and the fuel pickup line from main tank to header tank as these to lines do come in contact with the carbon frames on the Rap 90.

I have used this braiding (black) on my Trex600 & Raptor and shrink wrapped the ends, gives a very clean set up (and is lighter than the plastic tube wrap that alot of people including me use/have used).
