7*7 stainless

steel cable

Excellent corrosion resistance, strength, appearance, and versatility make our bright and highly polished stainless steel wire the bestlong lasting choice for wire applications in model aircraft aviation. Stainless Steel offers many adavantages, more noticeably the moresophisticated appearance, higher corrosion resistance, higher flexibility and higher tensile loads than galvanized cable, but lesser knownis 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 felxible aicraft cable and superior to competing products.



Latest Revision MIL-DTL-83420. Wire Rope , Flexible for AircraftOil Free - Dry ConditionControl, Type I - Non-Jacketed Wire Rope, Composition B: Corrosion-Resistant Steel. Superseding MIL-W-5424Specifications:All our three sizes of our stainless steel cable have been physically tested on a Tension load testing machine,you can find the test results below. By considering your plane’s setup, its mass and your flying style (what G-loads will you expose yourairplane to) you can decide on which cable size is right for you.

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 tailfeathers and pull-pull systems will require the 1/32 cable unless you either expect unusual load or need to match scale aesthetics.
