Use a seamless background like a long sheet of cloth or paper. Then filter the source of light to avoid glares from direct light.

Some basic rules are
1) Always direct the light away from the object, i.e. towards the nearest wall or surface if you are in the room.
2) If you are outdoors, take the photo in a shaded location
3) Keep the camera steady
4) If you use mobile phone (99% of the time) play around with its settings, you might find a manual setting providing a better result than the automatic settings

Hi there,
No there is no space under the motor. It sits flush with the recess of the chassis. Only motors without aluminum sleeve on the stator (i.e. Hobbywing, Performa, Reds etc..) may allow a wire to pass under the motor.
I extended the receiver wire on the LRP speedo by replacing the one it came with a much longer one and placed both sensor wire and receiver wire under the 3 motor wires.
In a way I arranged the motorwires to this direction in order to hide the other two wires and also allow for a neat parallel orientation of the 3 wires.
It is visible on the 'floating' side shot.

On the mmx, there is a recess machine into there bottom of the motor mount that allows the rx wire to pass under the mount.

The MMX does not have such space available if I remember well.

There is not as much room as there was on the mmcx, but there is just enough room around where the motor interfaces to fit the esc cable

Yo

u can see the rx wire running into the notch around the front of the motor in my mmx. Like Mike said, the notch is small, but you can still fit the rx lead through it. The chamfer on the front of most motors helps to provide a bit if extra space too.

Does anyone know what the piece that covers the solder tabs are called(in this diagram referred to as "Silicone Rubber Seal"? I like how it looks to tidy up the ends of the solder tab, was wondering if they're available separately.

Not the most beautiful job but it is pretty good for being lazy on esc and servo wires.

Some dead set works of art on here. Plenty to aspire towards.

This is my first attempt of "neat" wiring on my daughters buggy. Need some work on transponder and receiver wiring, think I'll start shortening wires. 3 more buggies to rewire and then see what I come up with on a 1/10 tc and 1/12 pan.
