I plan to install a capacitor for just peace of mind regardless if I need one or not.

What kind of capacitor would you guys recommend to use? The vstabi site recommend a minimum 16 Volt, min. 4700uF
I use the 3300uf one from HK on my 450's, which they call a "voltage protector". When I was using a CX-ZYX, adding the capacitor helped the tail servo run coolerr. With the Kbar, the tail runs cool. I also used a 10000uf on my 500 before using a separate RX pack.

If you think you're having any voltage problems, check the Event Log for low voltage alerts.

Finished up the Kbar fullsize remote sensor case replacement and sent it off to Shapeways to be printed, I'll report back when it arrives. If no adjustments are necessary I'll make the model available to whoever wants it.



All together it cost around $11 plus shipping to have printed from black nylon and transparent plastic for the lens. Dimensions are 30x30x9.15mm.

I think you should have done some sort of embossed Skull... wouldn't have made it any costlier, just fiddlier to draw!

Hey ASkull, is that to replace the gold standard sensor case it comes with?
Just curious what your reasoning is for replacing the original? Purely cosmetic?
Im looking at getting a fullsize for my 550. Will look forward to see what it looks like when its done.

The original sensor case has a tendency to develop splits when you install and remove it a few times. Sometimes it even comes with a split around the hole where the lead enters the case right out of the bag. Main unit case is fine and the electronics are fine but the quality of the sensor case is crap.
