Im just finished building a trex 600esp, and everything looks awesome except my align ds610 servo leads are too short to reach the receiver without having the wires near the motor, and i hear this 650L gets pretty hot. i have the rx in the rear of the base plate where the manual sugguests. any pictures would be great, im just trying to keep all wires inside the frame and away from the motor/edges of the carbon frame. thanks!

You can always tie the wires to the inside of the carbon frame. Just sand down the edges and you'll be fine.

I agree.

It concerned me a bit how close the servo wires are to motors and gear`s when I built my kit, but theres a difference between being close and actualy touching, much better than useing servo extenders.

With the wires running close to the motor, is there any need for concern about radio interference between the motor and servos?

i doubt it, i am much more concerned about the 200 degrees melting the insulation on the wire, but i guess i can get it as close as possible.

I ended up using a 6" servo extension. That way, I could keep the wires away from the motor and other hot items.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

i figured it out, i routed the ail/pitch servo wires where the cutout is on the frames right where the motor is. worked out perfect actually.
