Hi,

I'm wondering what is the best wiring to purchase for hooking up an overhead to the FDS SYS boards ?

Should be receiving my unit in a few weeks but just want to be ready...

Cheers

Jamie

Also make sure to use stranded wire, not core (one solid strand) which tends to break.
You will need "miles" of it. Get black, white, purple, red, blue and yellow for color coding.
I bought it on internet in 100 feet rolls

Thanks Jack,

I'll be interfacing a 777 overhead just mainly rotaries and korrys, my plan was one colour for rotaries and one colour for korrys and also brown for ground, I see it on ebay max 50m rolls so ill be expecting a few rolls soon, thanks again for the info...
