i assembled the frame and all components. now i split the frame to put all servo wires and ESC wires in braided sleeving and tie wire them to frame.

it seems the stock ESC leads to the receiver are a little short. if i install it under the battery tray i need the extra length of wire wrapped around the ferrite ring. i do not want to install ESC on the outside of frame. Remove F. Ring?

I would get a small 3" to 6" extention and use that and leave the ring.

Leave the ring, use an extension -- make sure it's a heavy duty extension, though, not the one with the weenie gauge wire.

I have removed all of the ferrite rings on all my Kontronik ESCs ever since upgrading to 2.4 and never had a problem.

The toroid removes noise from the power lines. Although you're running 2.4 GHz stuff, the electronics is still susceptible to noise on the power lines. ESCs aren't the cleanest source of power in the universe, nor are switching power regulators.

Good insurance.

Will the same size wire as on a servo work? Depends on the servo. The wire should be at least the same gauge as that coming out of the ESC.

If you're using the built-in BEC/regulator of the ESC to power your on-board electronics, go no smaller than what comes out of the ESC to begin with, after all, ALL of the juice needed to run the radio comes out that spigot of the ESC. If you're using an external BEC/regulator to power the radio, then you could go with smaller wire to the ESC, as you're not carrying all the current needed to keep your electronics happy in the air.
