Anyone have any ideas re securing snakes down the inside of carbon tail booms?

I have used expanding foam in the past!

If you can get some piano wire down the snake you can use a magnet on the outside of the boom to hold the snake secure inside whilst your epoxy on it dries.

Thanks for those suggestions chaps, I'll give them some thought.

Both have some appeal.

Stu Blanchard's Calypsos and the Optimus F5J fuselages I have just have a plug of blue foam (two holes for the snake outers) pushed halfway down the tapering fuz and secured at both ends.
