Many thanks for the wiring diagram. I have multi-strand wire that's (I think) 22 gage which should be perfect for this. Oh....button assignment - can you tell me how you mapped S1, S2, and S3 to the 4 buttons on the top keypad? S4 clearly gos to the trigger. :)
Glad to help!

I ordered what I thought was multi-strand, but when it arrived, it wasn't. The wire I included is the kind I used in my Marvel Pager and it worked out well. It's just a little sensitive to lots of 90-degree bends back and forth.

"Mode" should be the forward large button (it's essentially a safety)
"Up" and "Down" should be the right and left tiny buttons (normally, they control the power level but when you're in "disco mode" the left one plays the Orville theme and the right one plays a random quote from the show. Note: to enter "disco mode", you need to hold the trigger depressed when you power it up (takes a few seconds). Once you hear the power on sound, you can release the trigger. Oh, and when you boot up.. give it a good few seconds to start. You'll probably hear a short bit of "speaker static" when you turn it on.

I put the power on button in the center. (You can change that if you want... and swap L/R too.)

I also suggest painting the insides around the LEDS and buttons black- partly to stop bleed-through.

Ahh...I had forgotten about "disco mode"....!

I'll probably place the power on/off button at the top/front. Seems like reaching over a power button to get to the mode button can cause accidental shutdowns. Not something one would want in an emergency. :)

-tnx!

Got mine, loving the quality! I'm too busy at the moment to start working on it, but I am happy to report it fits perfect in the custom foam-cut pelican case I got for it.

I'm using this wire for your kit, and it's my go-to wire for these type of projects. Shoot me a pm if you want a sample and I'll send you a bit:

That is just wow. Last week I had a package going from New Jersey to New York that never arrived because it was so damaged in shipping that it destroyed the item inside. I'm now waiting for a refund, we will see how long that takes as the shipper and the Post Office fight it out to see who pays me back even though the I was told a refund had be sent out which should have just been a charge back on by CC.
