What are the capacity limits for 1/2 flex conduit? Will this include a ground wire?

What size conductors are you installing? What insulation on the wires? What type of flex?

14awg thnn. Conduit is 1/2 alflex. Run length will be maybe 7ft with 1 90 degree turn. Plan is to have 6 wires which will include 1 neutral and 1 ground wire. I'd like to think there is a table somewhere I could reference but Google isn't helping much at the moment.
