Cable Stainless Steel 7x7
7x7 Stainless Steel Cable
Excellent corrosion resistance, strength, appearance, and versatility make our bright and highly polished stainless steel wire the best long lasting choice for wire applications in model aircraft aviation. Stainless Steel offers many advantages, more noticeably the more sophisticated appearance, higher corrosion resistance, higher flexibility and higher tensile loads than galvanized cable, but lesser known is the fact that stainless steel cannot experience hydrogen embrittlement due to the galvanizing process like galvanized cable can.
All of our braided cable comes in 7x7, meaning seven woven strands of seven wires each make up the this highly flexible aircraft cable and superior to competing products.

Most planes at third scale will ask for the 3/64 cable, your quarter scale projects may ask for 1/32, true giants will require the 1/16 setups. Most tail feathers and pull-pull systems will require the 1/32 cable unless you either expect unusual load or need to match scale aesthetics.
