I thought the role of the electrolytic capacitor on the receiver was to either smoothen out the voltage ripples and spikes going into the receiver, or hold a small charge as a redundancy just incase if there's a sudden voltage drop that would cause a the receiver to reset (brown-out). I don't see how this capacitor would help in reducing glitches.

The brown outs and spikes are what people call glitches, hence the name glitch buster for the receiver capacitor.

Those come in handy when using one of the new high voltage servos, they pull a lot of power and sometimes can overwhelm the ESC's internal BEC when on throttle and steering out of a turn.

I just got the mt-4 today, and I want to confirm that the blinking lights problem is gone. Before the throttle response would stutter or would not response at all when I pull the throttle trigger while the lights flashes, but now the lights does not flash anymore throttle response in instantaneous and on time every time.
