Latest 417 from me... apologies for the rushed pics, grabbed them whilst running out the door this morning!

Quite pleased, even managed to re-wire the Savox servo correctly! It's tight, but everything just gets in there!! Still might move the switch to route the wires behind the ESC though.

Try and poke your fan wire through the holes in the motor mount, I did that when I had my fan there and it looked way nicer after doing that.

how are you guys shortening the wire of your servos?
=( I just broke a perfectly good servo by trying to do this. (not the soldering) but I think I broke something when I tried to pull out the motor ( bottom assembly)

I cut the wire and crimp a new connector on with a kit i got from hansen hobbies. I'm not brave enough to open the servo up and solder on a shortened connector.

I have been shortening my servo wires by soldering replacement pins on the ends of the leads, but it's a tricky thing, for a start you need a small tipped lower power iron.

Soldering into the servo is for the brave, I'm not keen on the idea, though it's likely the neatest option if you can do it, the 'good' crimpers are good, not as good as stock but still best easy option if you can get one.

RCMushroom has one, Hanson has another good one, I'll go that way soon so I don't have to solder anymore, don't know how people deal with full length wires, I got some new Savox LP and it's just dumb how long the leads are on them.

I use these exclusively and It really helps a cleaner presentation on the wiring.

If you do go this route buy a few extra packages of pins and practice on the piece you cut off. I had the issue of pins pulling off the wire the first time I tried it. Since their so cheap I normally buy 5-6 packs of pins at a time and they last over a year.
