Which wires? Are you talking about the antenna? If its just the normal servo wires, then yes bundle them up to keep them from harms way. If your talking about the antenna, is it stock or a deans or other type of whip?

You bend them but I personally would try to find a velcro strip to use (like the ones you use to put your battery in) That way there is no chance that you cut the wires by vibration. I have been trying to stay away from zip strips as much as possible for this very reason.

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

if we're talking 72mhz here (???) then the longer the antenna WITHOUT bending, the better the reception.

i'd rig up something to hold it out straight and tether to the boom (horizontal stab? if it will reach that far)

see my gallery, i have some old helis with 72mhz on them.

here's a micro. the antenna ran straight through the tube, then doubled back only about 1/2 way down the antenna tube, fastened with some shrink tubing to keep it secure.

if it ain't broke, break it.
