Bill, here is what I use lightweight and cheap. I cut them in half so I get twice as many to use, and just strip the insulation a bit and fasten your controller clips to the bare wires.

Excellent! Thanks for the tip, Lee! I was plotting a possible launch up the street this week, but the on again off again rain appears to have my number. I could possibly do it Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday, so each of those is a rain chance. :-D
