I have recently made the plunge into the flybarless world with the purchase of a AR7200BX, I am installing it on a MS Heli Protos 500 and was wondering if I could shorten the servo wires for a cleaner install? If so, do they all have to be the same length or will a few inch difference be a problem? I've had to install servo extensions before on one servo of a swashplate and never noticed an issue, I'm just not sure how a flybarless unit will react to this. Thanks in advance for any input on this matter.

a couple inches makes no difference in terms of overall servo speed moving the swash.
The early Cray XMP and YMP systems used wire lengths as a form of timing (so sets of parallel signals needed identical wire lengths connecting circuits), but there you were measuring speeds in fractions of microseconds.
Servo positioning is on a whole different order.
