What wiring? Wait, now I see it Very neat. Looks good to me. The braiding will protect it but for piece of mind you could always use some fuel tubing on the edges if you'd like to.

Braiding? Check. Shrink wrap where the wires touch CF? Check. All neatly stowed and zip-tied up? Check.

Looks great! I am a tad skeptical of your forward sat though. Let us know if you get any missing frames in the vBar log.

Looks good. I'm not so sure about the sat on the middle tray wall. Maybe that's the one Thor mentioned.

Ugh... everyone braiding their wires... Darnit. Now I have to do it, too... Where's a good place to get braiding and shrink tube, and what size will I need?

You need to get the 1/4" braiding to be able to fit it over the connectors. I've been buying it from Ready Heli, but the stuff that the original poster has looks much nicer.

Looks good. One thing i am slightly concerned about though is the wire coming out of the sensor. Is that wire rigid? Seems like it could transmit vibes into the sensor. If it is too rigid, you might need to use a little bit less braid/shrink wrap on the end of the wire near the sensor.

No you don't you can get the smaller stuff and it makes it look better just take the connector off. VERY easy to do.

Looks good overall. Are you able to plug the USB wire into the VBAR to do setup?

You could maybe go one step further- how about placing the CC Bec on the underside of the ESC tray- it would hide that from view and make make your wiring almost invisible.

Wow thanks for all the reply this is awesome info!
I will move the front sat, maybe underneath the front skid?

I hope that the Heli jive esc comes with a BEC built in so I can remove the CC BEC

The sat on the wall of the middle tray... I'd move that somewhere where the left element (as you look at the sat with the connector towards you and the logo on top) is clear from all obstructions. It should be no less than 6 inches from your other satellite--both satellites should be oriented as described above.

Not only does your Helijive come with a BEC it comes with one of the best BECs out there. The only draw back is that it only goes up to 6v. You will only probably feel this limitation though if you are into hard 3d. I cant notice this limitation on my Helijive (fitted to my Fusion 50).

Carp, i highly doubt(my opinion here) some of the best pilots out there could tell the difference from 6v to 7.4 or 8.4v.

lets take some run of the mill, popular servos...

outrage torq BL9180 cyclic servos
6 volts 0.13
7.4 volts 0.11
8.4volts 0.10
thats only 0.03 difference in speed from 6v to 8.4v. there is no way anyone could tell the difference in that small amount of speed. now the torque makes a decent jump for 6v to 8.4v. but i "personally" think it would be very very hard to tell in flight. so the helijve only allowing you 6volts should not limit anyone

The good thing about not having the ESC yet is that you can take the time to do a nice and neat wiring

Looks great. I will copy your layout except for the sats which I will place on the landing gear on each side of the plastic arms

Yeah at my skill level certainly, the only benefit to HV servos is that you can plug in a 2S LiPo without a regulator. However, I can do that with my 6v DS610s using a LiFePO4 pack anywy.
