lol I know where I can get some basic cable. Heck, I have a lot at home. I was just wondering if there are any preferred retailer, because this is a bit more specific than just buying hookup cable for electronics.

some advise from a wireman.. Keep the current consistent. copper is best for power if the rest of everything is copper keep it copper. Vice Versa

Sorry but this does not have anything to do with my question. I know what the difference is between copper conductivity and silver conductivity. Heck, this is what I am studying in at university (Electrical Engineering).

I would just like to know if there are any preferred brands/shops where people buys theirs. I have a lot of wire at home but it's mostly cheap wire for electronics and high quality audio wire, where I don't have to transport a lot of current.

Silver plated copper is the way to go. And don't be using cheap house wire or the stuff you get at princess auto. Check out hobbyshops and see if they have really good stuff. Speaker wire won't cut it lol
If your redoing your wiring, you might as well buy a MOSFET. There's really no point to upgrading your wiring if your going to run it through your trigger, the difference in ROF won't be noticeable at all. And since your trigger is the highest point of resistance in your electrical system, it should be the first thing to get rid of.
The idea is to replace your wiring when you decide to go with a MOSFET, since you have to rewire your AEG anyway, you might as well do it properly. That's when having good wire can give you an extra 20rpm, but most importantly, more battery life. Oh, and use deans connectors lol

Even if you can't find a hobbyshop, just google for wire manufacturers. Lots of companies sell wire. And any high quality wire you have left after rewiring your AEG can be used as REALLY high quality speaker wire, and for a WAY cheaper price than what you'd find at retailers!

I already have a basic HEXFET mosfet circuit installed. I just damaged my wiring so I thought I would change it.

I know all the theory behind it, I just need to find a retailer.

I do but they mainly sell Industrial Surplus stuff. This is usually not of the best quality. I know I would not build an audio amp with the components they sell there. It's good for small projects where tolerance is not important.

I think I found something.

Hobbyking is so awesome. Cheap batteries, cheap chargers, cheap wire, but all of really good quality.
