Re-routing the Antenna Wire

The original routing of the antenna wire looked good and was free of any electronic interference ... I thought! Initial testing was fine, but after a while problems began creeping up. I figured the brass, servo rod for the bow planes was creating an interference problem. so I re-routed the antenna wire.
I elected to route the wire on top of the forward WTC, keeping it away from the motors in the aft WTC, above the electronics in the forward WTC and definitely away from the bow planes servo rod. So far, this is working out better. Time will tell.

As you can see, I´ve secured the tubing (that encloses the wire) underneath the plastic strapping material that holds the forward WTC down to the lower hull half. There is enough tension to hold the tubing in place, but also provides for easy removal if necessary.
