Got some buildup pics up.

Ended up forgoing the built in wire retainers. They are a good idea but they don't hold the wires. Makes no sense. No biggy though. Spiral wrap looks nice as do all other types of sleeve protection but I don't like dealing with it when I need to make changes or repairs.

Here's are a few more pics.

Nice Job!!!
Looking good, but I had to see why the built in wire stays would not hold your wires.... (check my gallery... have never had a problem with them) but then I see that you have a heavy cable coming from your gyro that is included in the "bunch" so now I know why you had a problem.... but you did a very nice job resolving it too!!!!
Machine looks nice and I like the lights!!
Best of Luck with it.....

I didn't like the thick wire bundle up there being so close to the linkage and not being positively secured.

I must say they did an absolutely awesome job designing the accessabilty for wiring. I also love the area up font behind the electronics... it's a nice cubby hole area that you can stuff all your excess wire into without worrying about it interfering with any moving parts. There are numerous ways to route into and out of that area. You can see how I got into it. I'm not quite finished with it yet where the plugs are hanging. Makes for a clean wiring setup. This machine is very easy to work on.

Had some trouble finding very small gauge wire... just got an idea at radio shack.... telephone wire.... the loose extension cords have nice fine color coded wire inside

I can't run the wire inside the tailboom for risk of the belt wearing through and shorting it. It will be attached to the underside... probably with little dabs of hot glue.

I noticed the gyro tape is doubled up. May or may not be a issue, but it's typically recommended to use the red 3M exterior grade double sided tape.

I also noticed you're using the large Futaba servo wheels. I know they don't go out to 20mm and 23mm for the book-specific travels for the ccpm system.

I'm using Dubro Super Servo arms. I used one of the double-arms that has a 23mm hole and cut off the other side. I used the medium arms on the pitch/aileron and measured out 20mm from the servo output shaft center and drilled my hole. Geometry is perfectly to spec.

Just my opinion.

All of the arm dimensions are dead on. I noticed the Dubro arms come in 20-1/2mm. These wheels are dead on 20mm


I purchased this heli almost complete. The gyro was already installed. I saw others using the same double setup.
