If you put the tail motor wires on the outside of the tail boom, nail polish is good to hold it and protect the wires.

A product called Un-Cure is a debonder that turns the cyanoacrylate (CA) glue into a gel, but you have to keep poking the glued part, wiping, adding more Un-Cure.
I had the wires in the boom shaft but the piece that held the motor seemed like it was tighter than the original. That is where the wires got damaged, pinched between the motor and the plastic housing.

Thanks for the input, will see what it looks like this time (when I get everything) Next time I am not flying into the house at full speed!
