Anyone have a local supply of CAT6E or CAT7 shielded twisted pair cable? I'm planning on changing most of my cable out on the Skywalker to try and get better video range.
Great info on this can be found here:

If it's to be, it's up to me.

Good question. I've been cutting up some spare cables at home looking for something suitable lately, and can't find much that's shielded well.

Maybe Jaycar has something?

Nah tried them yesterday all they had was unshielded cable.

I have just ordered a 10 meter CAT7 patch lead off Ebay but it will take probably 2-3 weeks to get here.

I am keen to do same range testing as I have just received a new 1.2 heliaxial antenna from CW to go with one of their omni's, want to give it a good distance test now but think I have a fair bit of RFI from my video TX.

Well, kind of, I've taken up part time work building WW2 Aircraft flight models for a new Russian game company. They have offered me full time from mid 2013 if all goes well so I'm a bit busy making sure I impress. It's the other hobby I have that finally may pay my way and I'm keen to pursue this for obvious reasons heheh. Getting up @ 0530 every day so I can talk with Europe leave me a bit tired so the FPV has slipped. If all goes to plan I'll be in my 'dream job' of building ww2 aircraft on a laptop from my pool side in Brissy, and flying FPV on my days off

Crossin' my fingers.

What you are looking for is Class F cable.

FSTP cable sounds similar to USB cable. I have access to lots of that cabling but it does not shield between individual strands, thats the beauty of CAT7. You can run video down one single strand of a pair and audio down another and you a shield between the two. You also get shielding from external RFI due to the shielding around all eight strands.

I have ordered a 20 meter CAT7 patch lead off Ebay ($20) but as it is coming from China will take a couple of weeks. Unless I can find some local will have to wait.
cheers
