Default GMv12 ESC question...

If anyone knows, I would greatly appreciate it...

What is the correct CAP to use with a GMv12 ESC?
(the manual read GM1539) but I can't find info for this. Is it a 820uf 16v?

...and DO I, or Don't I use a Schokkty Diode with this ESC?

------- for those that don't have the manual and need to set it up....


FYI:
Quick Tune
Torque control
Connect motor and battery to your speedo as described earlier in this manual.
Turn on your transmitter and set all throttle rates to 100%.
Turn on your speedo at the switch. The LED will come on.
Press the set button once. The speedo will beep as you press it. Do not move the throttle on your
transmitter. After 2 secs the speedo will beep and the LED will go out (neutral saved). In the next 4 secs
give full throttle, full reverse and then back to neutral on your transmitter.
The speedo is now tuned to your transmitter.
To check you have tuned it properly, the LED will only come on at neutral, full speed and full brake.
If it does not, repeat the above section.

That's the cap that came with mine (worlds edition). You do need a schottky with the V12 (NOT on the V12R though).
