      How To  Use Nylon Braid to tidy up the radio wiring on your helicopter
I have come across a great many helicopters in my time, and most have the radio and servo leads tie wrapped to the frame in all sorts of areas, but generally, and no matter how hard you try, it is difficult to get them to look anywhere close to neat.

There is a solution to this however, and that is to use nylon braiding, as shown in the picture below.

The nylon braiding shown here is available from some good model shops, and other sources, and with a bit of care, you can get about 4-5 cables into one single braid.  Our picture shows rather "straggly" ends to the braid, but this can be tidied up very easily by using a lighter or similar heat source to gently melt the nylon at the ends to form a nice neat job, as long as you do it carefully so that you do not melt or burn  the wire coverings
