So DC current does not mostly flow on the outer surface of the wire? Oh well I thought I had thought of some weight saving idea there but to be safe I guess you should use
7 strands of of .0799 mm for the m20
and
7 strands of .0564mm for the Didel 4.5ohm 6mm motor.

I thought about making the ends of actuator coils litz wire for added strength. Maybe I read it somewhere I cant remember but the idea is good regardless if it was my idea or not. Instead of soldering the Litz wire to the ends of the coil wires build it in. Leave enough for say 7 strands of about
10" a peice or however long you need so 70" on each end for 10" of reinforced wire. If they are remote then you probably only need 5" or so.
