13.9.2 Autopilot Roll Servo Wire Routing Modification

This entry is part 9 of 67 in the series 13 - Electrical / Instruments

I couldn’t figure out the best way to route the wires to the autopilot roll servo from the right wiring duct to the servo. I asked Malcolm and he said to bring it forward to the whale tail and then back to the servo. But I wasn’t planning on that long of a run and the wires weren’t long enough. It’s not a huge deal to run new wires but that was a rather circuitous route. I asked about running them directly across but Malcolm wasn’t keen on wires that close to the gear retract cables. So I cut a length of .25″ aluminum tubing and glassed it in position.

Nice, short cable run, protected from any moving parts. Win/win.
