    Source for thin hook-up wire for video connections

    Will be starting my next build in a day. I'll be adding an OSD and using and FC with through holes instead of sockets on the UARTs. So I may need some hook-up wire of the gauge that typically comes with VTxes and cameras. Anyone know a source of a moderate quantity, a foot or two, in multiple colors?

    Shielded cable or just stranded conductors?

    Just thin stranded, like the stuff on the pig tails that come with cameras and VTxes.

    Then I would suggest you check out this guys store, what he sells is top shelf silver plated stranded conductor Mill spec wire produced by Alpha at half the price that Mouser or Newark charges and you don't have to buy it in 100 foot reels as he sells it by the foot in the larger gauges or by 10 foot lengths in the smaller gauges.

    The Teflon insulation is tough and holds up real well to being soldered and unlike most cheap Chinese silicone insulated conductors, it doesn't corrode the wire it's insulating and the silver plating ensures easy soldering and excellent low resistance crimp connections.
