Default Show me your wiring

I dont know if this has been done yet but I just figured this would be a good thread to show off your wiring and get some ideas.

Do you follow the align electronic placement or you just go by what you feel like.

Also any tips would be awesome

a little of both, I have built several helis already so I read and weigh what the manual says and do what I think is best.

I look at what the manual suggests, and then ignore it.
I try to get everything inside the frame (plenty of room for everything on the 550). I don't like to strap things to the outside of the frame.

Heres some pics of mine.

I used to hide everything, but now i mostly try to run the wiring outer so its a heap easier to repair, and servos can easily have their gearset changed without having to unplug and undo all the wiring. I also use nitto automotive electrical tape, or 3m, saves braiding and insulates and helps stop general (not genital) chaffing.

A good tip is try not to run wires where it makes removing the boom box or other parts difficult, when the helis easily serviced and repaired it makes crashes and fixups so much less of a drama.
Cheers Col.

Here is some of my wiring. It may look like some wire are resting on the frame edges but rest assured they are not touching. Feel free to critique me

Show me your wiring

I can't, because 90% of it is hidden inside the frames and covered in heat shrink. But the ESC is on the side.

Col, I see where you are going but to me that is not the way to do it, keep wires on the inside but keep them visible for inspection.
