Servo wire clearance
A questions for the experts here. Im installing my servos in the servo tray and was wondering whats the best way to secure the wires so there no chance of them getting into the servo horns on the other side of the tray. The manual suggest to tape the aileron servo wires to the back of the servo. Should i do this with all my servos? Ive never set up a Nitro bird and I hear about issues with vibrations and electronics, so not sure whats best for this heli. Maybe someone has a picture of the how there's is. My heli is the Raptor 50 V2.

I taped my aileron servo wire to the bottom of the servo so it would stay clear when the pitch arm moves. I have a pic in my gallery of how I had my electronics set up, but I've rebuilt that heli since then and tried to tidy it up a bit more.

I would definitely suggest trimming you're unused servo arms (once you're sure of their neutral side) to eliminate anything catching. I used a dremel with a cutoff tool and cut it right at the first hole and rounded the edges.
Remember when flying inverted that down is up and up is EXPENSIVE!

I tape them all as in the manual.
Never regretted that. I have read numerous reports here of people with broken servo wires where they contact the electronics inside the servo.

I also use cable protection around the wires, because I use tieraps to keep wires in place and these tieraps may damage the wires.

I suggest staying away from wire zip ties. In a mishap they do not allow the wires to move at all, which could result in pulled wires, stripped insulation, etc. I use short sections of velcro, secures the wires, but will let loose under extreme stress.

Nice idea to use velcro
But don't you think that, if the servos start to move, there must be a massive impact on the front and the servos are toast anyway?

w.pasman,

Said: <<<But don't you think that, if the servos start to move, there must be a massive impact on the front and the servos are toast anyway?>>>

Reply:
Good point, but what if the impact in only hard enough to dislodge your Rx or battery? With zip ties your stripping wires, the velcro will be more likely to come looseand allow some movement.

bulldogs,

Looks good, but is the velcro enough to hold your battery?
