  • Fitting Everything Into Your SubDriver

    Or... trying to fit 10lbs of wires and connectors into a 5lb cylinder.

    I need some help from the wise on how to jam everything into the aft dry space on my 2 inch Sub Driver. I feel like it would be appropriate to call it the machinery space... Anyway. I have tried bunching all of the wires from the servos up with mini zip-ties, but I still found myself basically cramming all of this stuff in there and thinking there has to be a better way.

    So, I turn to the group. Curious to see how you all have overcome this problem of space - or a decided lack thereof.


    Thank you in advance!

    A good, valid, and timely question, Brady. And one that deserves a complete answer. Tonight I'll dig through my photos (and shoot supplemental ones if needed) that will help with the narrative to explain how to get all that **** into such a small space.

    Pleas, stand-by!

      Oh thank god. I will put my Dremel tool and cutting torch down, and slowly back away from the workbench until I hear more!
