Foamwing and problems with RC installation

I have bought a used Bonito without RC-equipment, the problem is now to install the servo's in the wings because it's impossible to pull the servocables through the foamwing.

The Bonito wing is a one piece 193 cm wing, foamcore covered with balsa.

Any suggestions to solve this problem?

Regards Claus

Get a piece of string and a vacuum cleaner. Hold onto one end of the string, and use the vacuum to suck the string through (remember to hold onto the other end of the string). Once it's thru, tie the servo lead to the string and use it as a fish to pull it thru.

Sounds like a good idea, I'll try and see if it will solve the problem.

Thanks.

Also , if that doesn't work you could tie on a small piece of foam, something smaller than the area you are trying to fish. This gives the vaccuum something with mass to suck. It will work guaranteed. I have been fishing conduit for over 20 years and it never ceases to amaze me the ways some people get wires through things. Just when you thought you seen it all................someone shows you another way
