;D Curious about one thing here, aside from plugging an electrical parts supplier: Is it a good idea to do an ESC calibration after adding capacitors? Secondly, their large size introduces some complications in installing the replacements, which we discuss in the following sections.

The plain foil type are the ones that have just been described while etched foil type capacitors use aluminum oxide on the anode and cathode foils that have been etched to increase surface area and permittivity, the measure of a material's ability to store charge.

How To Test A Capacitor With A Multimeter

I now run a single 220uF 25v cap on each ESC and my video is better, but more importantly I have not lost a single component since except the Tramp I bent in half in a crash — not spike related.
