Here is what I started doing where wires pass over CF frame edges/holes. Just dab 5 min epoxy around the edges and it makes smooth plastic like plastic grommets. This is where you can't install rubber gromets because of the shape.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

You can sand them easily and or run a bead of thin ca on the edges of the frame. It makes a lot cleaner looking build.

Those beads of epoxy are inside a frame where you can't see it, that's why I made it thick. It's a quad stacked frame and that is the middle frame.

I would use this rubber stuff before I uglied up my helicopter with epoxy.
Much more aesthetically pleasing.
Also, +1 to sanding and CA. That's all you should ever need. And don't route wires so close to the frames!!

This. I learned the sand/CA trick racing on-road cars years ago on indoor carpet tracks. The sharp edges of the chassis would cut/snag the carpet if you didn't sand and CA. It's a lot of work but produces a very clean and well finished product.
