This is some pics of Eagletree's baro airspeed and altitude sensors embedded in the wing of my Cularis glider. I'm using them with my FPV setup.
I carved a groove on the bottom side of the wing over the servo wire channel, this allowed me to run the daisy chain wire to the root of the wing where an additional connector mates up when I plug the wings into the fuselage. I have a piece of lexan covering them. Its sunk into the wing flush with the surface. There is nothing protruding except the pitot tube.

Pitot tube looking straight on to the leading edge.
Silicon tube plumbing between pitot tube and airspeed/altitude sensors. Carbon spar is visible just near the outputs of the pitot tube.
Bottom side of the wing, flap and Servo cover in view.
Lexan sheet sunk in flush with the wing. Just sticky tape holding it.
Profile view, nothing protruding except of course the pitot tube.
Closer shot of the plumbing. Flap and Aileron servo wiring visible.
Sensors daisy chained together and and excess wire is poked down the servo wire channel.
4 pin connector mounted in wing root for Eagletree IC2 bus - Airspeed and Altitude. 3 pin connectors are for Cularis standard setup of Aileron and flap servos.
4 pin connector mounted in the fuselage.
When the wing plugs into the fuselage all the connections are made.
Wing root with connectors.
