FYI, be a bit careful when using #20 gauge wire on our servo extensions. Some of those servo connector pins are rated for #22 or smaller diameter wire. So, when #20 wire is crimped into those pins, you may not get a gas tight crimp, resulting in high resistance after a long period of time.

In the past I run into problems getting a 20awg crimp into the connector housing

The Hansen deluxe wire gives you your choice of ribbon or twisted and JR or Futaba colors.

They only have # 22 & # 24 awg (which is probably fine for that purpose):
