Wire size facts: Most standard size servos and factory battery packs come with 26 gauge wire. Normally when a standard size servo hits the high torque category or more (digital etc...) it will come with 22-gauge wire. Most factory standard switches are 26-gauge wire. All standard size (like factory size) Radical RC switches come with 22-gauge wire just like our large heavy duty switches do. We like it better! 22-gauge is the size of wire people are talking about when they say "heavy duty" and everything we sell that way is. There is a myth that you can buy 20-gauge servo wires and extensions. YES, all our 20 gauge is just under 20-gauge actually (about 90%). If you use true 20-gauge wire then the insulation will not fit inside hobby connector shells. True 20 gauge must be stripped all the way to the outside. This makes for some pretty "uncomfortable" looking connectors and shorts become a real possibility. Not worth it in my view. Our "20" is as many strands and as much copper as you can stuff into a connector shell and still have insulation and strain relief. Surface area of the wire is the really important factor and it's the reason we use so many strands in our wire. It is the good stuff! High strand count wire is also much less prone to break internally under the millions of vibration cycles it will see in your fuel powered model. Sure, you can get cheaper lower strand count wire however it is risky and losing only one model to the poor quality gear isn't too smart. Just in case you did not know, as the gauge number gets smaller, the wire size gets bigger. Stranded wire guage is not measured by bundle OD. It's measured by totalling the crossectional area of all the individual strands. Hope you know a little more now than when you came.

3 Pole Futaba Colored Servo Twisted Silicone Insulated Wire 20 Gauge

Heavy Duty, Silicone Insulated approximately 20 gauge twisted servo wire. .008" diameter x 90 wire-strand. Futaba colors, 3 conductor, fine strand and supple.
HINT: Silicone insulated wires are extra supple, wear and heat resistant. High quality wire is a "must use" when the wire must take many repeated bends, passes through a hinge line, is located in an unsupported high vibration area, or where high heat is an issue. For example, near exhaust tunnels or pipes or anything that could come into contact with an engine. Also, as a side note, because of the very high temperatures it takes the melt the silicone insulation, a momentary short is NOT likely to lead to the insulation melting and a new permanent short forming. These are the basic advantages of silicone insulated wire.
HINT #2: Twisted wire tends to reduce radio interference if you have lots of long servo leads in your model.

2 Pole Battery Ribbon Wire Heavy Duty 22 Gauge Red/Black

Heavy Duty 22 gauge flat Ribbon Battery and Switch wire. 60wire/strand. 2 conductor, fine strand and supple. Select length desired below. Hint: Beware of wire size less than 22 gauge for any battery or switch wire. We've seen standard size switches with 24 and 26 gauge wire before and even battery packs with 24 gauge wire. This practice is substandard and low grade. Don't bottleneck your energy supply. 22 Gauge is the only acceptable size for your main power supply current path.
