Default Strobe light kit from MPI

Alright I know Xenon is not the way to go for a strobe kit. I currently have the kit installed on my SR22. They look beautiful at night and are super bright only problem, my servos jump. The unit is sold by MPI and it is currently being powered by a 7.4v battery which is separate from the main system. The battery has a BEC that reduces the volts to 5.1 currently. I went out and got ferrite rings and chokes. Both of which did little to reduce the amount of EMI. The only thing left to at least salvage this project is to shield the wiring. I'm not sure if it should be the strobe wiring or the servos. The strobe control box is well away from any electronics. I have it sitting on a table with two ferrite rings installed. Any and all advice is welcome. I'm at a complete lost as to what to do. Should I get a CAT 6s cable for the strobes?? If so how would I wire that up?

Had any luck isolating your radio interference? I was looking at that same strobe unit for my plane.

Sorry for the late reply. No I removed the kit and installed an led on. I had to replace all of my servos from the interface caused by the strobe kit.
