Wires & Cables

I've been wanting to create a video about my experience with buying aircraft wire since I returned from FSweekend. I had run out of my personal stash, so I decided to buy some online. Unfortunately, the price of the wire was out of my budget, but I still went ahead and bought around 15 different rolls that were suggested by each vendor as an alternative.

I discovered some great alternatives and some not-so-great ones. I was a little upset when I realized that after the video I had 2500 meters of cable that I had bought might not be suitable for soldering, but I soon realized that it could still be used for crimping and RS45 jacks. This means that I can use all the cables in the cockpit without wasting any.

If you're interested, I've provided details and specs of the cables, tools, and heat-shrink labeller on this webpage.

If you have any suggestions of cable you think should be included, let me know, and I will purchase a sample roll to add to the list.

Kind regards, Karl

Hello Karl,

Do you intend to sell some of the cables?




The wire guide was very helpful and perfectly timed! Thanks for the info!
