I use plastic coated wire, like bread ties, aka 'twisties'.
It keeps the wires from vibrating and is easy to remove.

I just finished reading some stuff of spartan rc website. They state that the wires for the gro shoud NOT be covered in servo braided wrap. It makes the wires stiffer and can cause unwanted vibes.. They also say that the gyro wire should not be fastened to the frame of the heli for the first 5cm or 2 inches from the gyro case.. You learn something new every day, so if you have a wag you can't get rid of, and your gyro wires are covered in braided wrap. That might be the reason why

BOBTHEBUILDER32, you are(they are) correct, but if sleeved correctly its still OK. IMO they state this for the guys that go overboard and have everything way too tight. I have sleeving on all my heli's and if done correctly it works great, and also looks really nice. The gyro is very sensitive and needs extra care when installing and wiring, but it is alright to bling it out and protect it with some sleeving...

Crashing and/or rebuilding, replacing, and testing servos so frequently the wires don't have time to get too damaged before they're switched out?
