    Wiring from pots to interface card

    Greetings again. Quick few questions. When wiring from my pots in the throttle quadrant and yoke:

    1) Is length of wire an issue? If so, what is max length I should use from throttle/yoke to interface card?
    2) What type of wire should I use (as in...when I go to the electronics place, what kind of wire do I ask for)?

    Thanks.

    As short as practical, but I wouldn't run them longer than 6-8'.

    Ask for 22ga stranded copper wire.
