Default Powerbox HD extension Lead wire

In the UK Powerbox servo wire has become the number 1 favourite in Jet models, they have now produced a larger version suitable for the bigger models so invogue
The power cables are larger 0.5mm˛, with the signal a smaller gauge.The Premium™ MAXI servo cable is the thicker variant of the familiar Premium™ cable with a conductor cross-section of 0.35mm˛. In this case ‘thicker’ means that the current-bearing positive and negative conductors have a cross-sectional area of 0.5mm˛, while the signal conductor’s cross-section is 0.3mm˛ in order to save weight. This makes the Premium™ Plus cable ideal for installations where relatively long leads have to be deployed in the wing or fuselage for high-performance servos.

This insulation produces a weight reduction of about 30% compared with the conventional PVC.

I tried this wire and bought it from dreamworks but ended up having to rip it all out from my FB Viper. The wire sleeve kept braking. Maybe I miss understood which one they have. the runs that I needed to reach back to the rudder and elevators were long so with a mix of maybe the wire DW is selling and the length of my servo extension gave me a bad tast on the wire. I wouldn’t mind trying to use it again but maybe the new size that PB offers

I used PB wire exclusively with their connectors, very good product, I will get that bigger wires if I get into bigger then a 2 meter’ish jets.....no problems at all with the wire solid connection, the right crimper does help.
