I use sheilded mini coax for home theater systems. Twisted works just as well. Dont run next to motor power wires. Dont let them move around inside, any vibrations of wire will creat noise.

Martin,
You got my attention on that mini coax. Do you have a link for your source?
Thanks

AutoPilot .
its maybe a good idea but only 2 wire .
Servo wire is good i think , i got some that is ultra light for indoor use , can it be used from Vtx to camera ? my camera is low power use .

I would recommend twisted servo wire, as for some equipment you'll like having 3 wires (camera, TX, etc)

To avoid having a spaggetti wiring, I use a small prototyping pcb where all the connections are made (everything except the high-current wires from battery to ESC to motor of course).

I've posted some photos here : https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...9#post17053703
