Default securing Radio gear

Had a run away with my MP777 the other day the power just cut out wouldnt even turn back on or off. when i opened my receiver box I pushed down on all the cables to make sure they were plugged in properly then my radio gear seemed to work again. the receiver battery is sitting next to the reciver cable so it must of worked the power one out now I have a distorted chassis and not sure about my engine, was just finishing the break in process (about 1 gallon through). Do you guys take any extra measures to secure the servo and power cables.

i like to set the receiver on a piece of foam that covers the bottom up to the sides. then on the lid i glue another piece of foam so that when i put the cover on it kinda smashes the wires into the receiver without being able to come out. and it doesnt damage the wires cause its the foam holding them down
