How did you builders route wiring from the cockpit to the empannage? I haven't closed up the aft fuselage yet, so can install standoffs for wiring without much trouble. I need to run a five-wire cable for the elevator trim and wires for aft position light and a tail beacon. The model is a CH-750.

I used the double zip-tie stand-off method.  Drill a hole in a support "L", loop a zip-tie and but do not draw it down tight.  Then run your wire bundle past it and zip-tie to the zip-tie.  This worked on my 601 and should work fine on your 750 too.  It is just one of many ways to do it.

I had to run the same trim wire aft (no tail position light wiring as my strobes have white aft-facing position lights).  It just happens that the longeron extrusion has a sort of channel inside the 90 degree bend.  This will accept and hold a plastic corrugated wire loom (? 3/8 ? diameter as I recall?) and I put the trim wires inside the loom and slid it down the longeron to the tail.  Securely holds and protects the wires and it certainly keeps them neat!

Here's a pic (looking aft) of the black corrugated loom running down the channel created by the lower longeron (behind the antenna cable that is attached to standoffs):



Well, that worked very well. The inside diameter is 3/8". Steve
