I was wondering where I can get wire that is similar to that found on the circuit boards. I recently extended some wires on a 2.4 board and stole wire from a dead board, I used it all and might need some in the future. I tried a few different kinds but most were not flexible enough. What is the best place to find some at and what gauge would I need. Thanks in advance for any info you can give me.

I don't know if this will help but here at the shop in miniz section in misc. atomic has a complete wire set for the PCB part#icoo8 atomic mini z switch and wire set. Hope this helps.

Ringer, that is just a switch, and the wires that connect it to the board.

VAz, telephone wire works great, and is cheap too ;)

You can use IDE cable wire from a computer. I have used it on a few overlands and monsters in the past. Phone wire should work as well.

The computer cable sounds like a good idea, the telephone wire I tried wasnt flexible enough to route through the steering boxes.

If you have a round IDE cable, those wires are good for the pot. Although, they seem a little thin for the servo motor. So you may want to use a different wire for the motor. Regular IDE ribbons are a little thicker, so they may be good for the motor, although could be too thick for the pot.

Good luck :D

Ninja this is what I was talking about that I found in the shop. U mean 2 tell me that it takes all of the wires 3 with eyelets 2 hook 1 power switch 2 a mini z board? What it looks like 2 me from the image is U got 2 wires for the motor, 1 wire for the antenna, 2 white wires for the switch, and the rest for the pot and servo motor. If U bought this item part# ic008 and only got a switch then the supplied pic 2 show what the item looks like is wrong or whatever the case may be.

VA,

I've got some stuff that might work for you. I'll bring it to Paintball if we don't meetup before then. If you like it I can tell you where to get some.

It's basically computer ribbon. The same stuff that comes on a Nelly turbo.
