Default Shielded cable for servo extentions?

I have have been lenghtening servo leads for years depending on the application at hand.
This situation requires longer leads than I have used in the past (wings) so I was wondering if
shielded 22 ga com cable would be of any benifit? Or will it cause trouble?

Thanks...

This can be tricky.....I do know if the wires are twisted, they resist (?) accepting interference. Maybe chokes?

UltraCote used to offer a covering called UltraCote Supreme and it was radio RF opaque! That would a nice covering for the wings.....

Shields are more trouble than they are worth.

My experience using shielded cable to eliminate a servo-searching problem simply indicated that it did not have any effect.
