Wires to use?
Hey guys, which wires should I buy in bulk for all my wiring needs? I was thinking about getting a spool like this one: Click Here
I thought about getting the above item in BLACK, RED and WHITE. Is this a good start? Is 20AWG a good size for the wire in order to prevent it from easily breaking at the solder points? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
BTW, just placed my first order with Hispapanels!!!

I used 24 AWG cables (Mostly Cat5e) for my wiring.. 20AWG is going to be larger, but still easy to work with.. I wouldn't go larger then 18AWG though, as then things are just to hard to work with..

Yep, for low voltage and signal 24 ga. is fine.
Higher voltages used in my sim get 20 ga. on all busses.Boeing Skunk Works
Remember...140, 250, and REALLY FAST!
We don't need no stinkin' ETOPS!
