I am installing a new cable outlet from a sattelite next to an existing cabel outlet. I have run the RG6 Coaxial cable from the sattelite through the attic and have found where to drop it into the wall. What is the best way to get the cable down the wall and catch it to put a wall plate in without destroying your drywall? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Depends if it is an interior or exterior wall .
Interior walls usually don't have any insulation in them. For an Interior wall just drill a small hole in the top plate and either feed in the cable or drop a string with a weight on the end. You should be able to reach it through the hole you make for the new face plate.
Exterior walls require a fish tape or some stiff wire to run down and or through the insulation.
