GOOOOOODDD MORNIN WORLD, Yea ok Robin Williams does this better.

I'd like to get some ideas on what I could use for flying wires. I just
hate thread; it collects dust even in an enclosed case. I've been useing
monofiliment fishing line and stretched sprue, but looking at a couple of
planes last night I thought that this could be improved upon. I'm considering
thin brass wire. Has anyone used this? If so, how well did it work? I
have seen flying wires on a few Biplanes in the area, and they all have
flat sections to help cut the air. It's hard to tell from photos if WWI
kites had this or not.
Thanks for the help.
