DF13 cables

 Now that 3DR no longer carries DF13 cables, many people are having trouble getting hold on to them. So I am starting a thread where hopefully people who have information can share where we can get this from.

 

 Some Chinese vendors do provide pre-crimped DF13 wire and the housing. However the wire they provide are very stiff causing vibration to be transferred to the controller.

 

 Another problem is that the wires are not joined to form a ribbon. Eg.  A 6 pin DF13 cable from 3DR was a nice single ribbon. However if you build your own using the pre-crimped cables then it pretty much gets to resemble a bird's nest, especially when many are used on the controller for all the accessories.

 

 I know that digikey carried precr-imped wires. I have ordered some and I am yet to receive it. Once I receive it I will update on their performance.

 

 If you buy a new PIXHAWK/GPS from 3DR, they do provide you with these cables. So it appears that they are able to source this from somewhere. I think many people would like to know where we can get these cables from.

 PIXHAWK is so widely used. All the connectors it uses are DF13. I am sure that where we can get these cables is important.

Thanks
