Not the world's greatest, but its something

The wire bundle running up the right side of the radio tray...

Something that works good:
Drill a small hole on the right side of the radio tray along the edge.
That hole is nice to run a tie-wrap through to secure the wire bundle.

You may want to use velcro straps or something instead of tie wraps, as tie-wraps might wear through the wires overtime due to vibration/

billboat10--
I have enclosed several close ups of my Raptor wiring routing.
Photo 1- Raptor 60 w/70 OS motor routing..
Photo 2- Raptor 30 w/37 OS motor (Non 2.4 w/ JR 770 JR receiver)
(this is the oldest helo in the fleet...)
Photo 3= Raptor 50 Titan muffler side and receiver/battery

Now All Raptors are pretty much the same, no matter what size!
Your best bet is to run the wiring where it is not too tight!

The next thing--- BEFORE the "Anti-Zip Tie" crowd jumps in is
that the Raptors in the photos are regularly taken apart for
maintenance due to the stress's put on them.

As Dood said:
Remember to use fuel line for Anti-Chaffing or rubbing issues.
Use Velcro or zip tie protection if you do not regularly take
the helo apart for service/maintenance/inspections.........

Additionally all Gyros are mounted on the rear of mainshaft..

I hope the photos help and upload some of yours when your done
to see how it looks..
