Default Need wiring pics for E700 build

I finally bit the bullet and am building an E700 V2. The build is going very well, but I'm having issues with the wiring for the ESC motor. I am using a Hobbywing 130A, and have modified the front ESC tray so I do not have to hang it off the side. Below are pics of what I'm dealing with. Can fellow E700 flyers post some pics of how you have wired your E700? Many thanks and happy flying.

It's been awhile since I built mine but I do recall deciding to mount the esc (a scorpion commander 160) on the side frame to get better cg. Also so that I could load the batteries from the back without taking off the canopy. The battery wires come out the back so with the esc on the side frame it was easy to run the wires from the battery side back to the connectors on the batteries. The esc also gets more air flow there than if it were tucked under the canopy in the front. I don't recall that the esc wouldn't fit in the front, just having it on the side made things more convenient for battery loading and for cg.

I'll have to post pics later, but I can confirm you can put an esc up front. I did that with a castle 120 on mine because it looks way better, and you have to have loooooooong ass wires hanging out the back in order for them to be convenient to plug/unplug without scraping your hands on the frame. A couple things to note though.
-Don't be surprised if it ends up a bit nose heavy.
-Definitely put a fan on the ESC. Luckily that's super easy on the HW 130.

Thanks - please post the pics when you can. I can deal with a little off-center CG. I tend to spend way to much time figuring the best way to wire a heli and the E700 is no exception. Hopefully the servos, etc will be easier, but at the moment the motor --> ESC is giving me headaches.

I had to do the 'ESC tray mod' and cut off the two little arms on the tray to allow the ESC to fit - now it's just figuring out how to route the motor/ESC wires and get on with the build!
