This weekend we were messing around with a few speed runs and after my second one, I checked my one servo only to find a shongololo (centipede) wrapped around the servo. As I was about to take it out it moved very fast and the tail became very thin at the end - it was a SNAKE in my Sangoma wing (the one with the frogs on for those at the F3B WC). I HATE snakes.

We took the wing off, taped up all except on servo bay completely and took the last servo out to try to get him out but couldn't so we left the wing away from the cars in the hope that he'd leave sometime in the day. At the end of the day I taped up the last hole and don't know if the snake is still in there.

Any suggestions of how to get a snake out of a wing without destroying the wing?

Cheers Michelle
