How do you go about shortening the servo wires? Is doing it yourself the only way to shorten the leads out of servos/ESCs?

You can buy replacement servo wire terminals, that can be soldered or crimped on, crimping is best but the good crimpers cost a bit.

Some people do crack open the cases though and just resolder to the servo boards inside.

They do, however since that picture I did the servo mod to it, which was tricky because of it being the 2010 and under setup, but I did get it

It should not make a difference in either department. However I shorten them inside on the board, but you have to have a perfect tip on the iron or it will look like a mess. I also put a dab of shoe goo just to be safe.

Here's my attempt at a clean 12th scale install with Rx pack. This took forever and a day. I did a lot of looking through the various installs in this thread, they were a big help. I didn't go the blacked out route because I've been known to goof when I'm in a hurry...
