Question
extra compacitors for Hydra esc

Ok so I see almost everyone running extra compacitors on their Hydra esc's. I have an older hrdra 240a & a newer Hydra 240a ice. What is the best size/type compacitor bank too buy? I see Castle makes one for $25 kinda steep but if it saves my $300 esc then wrth it!!

I feel compassion for all capacitors, they have such a hard life...

Is the 240 a high voltage ESC? You want capacitors rated at a higher voltage than the highest voltage you'll be running. You can make your own capacitor bank with the right caps.

Try to find 50V 1000uF capacitors, as many as you have room for.
