Default Capacitor Values/Replacements

I read...
"You can either be safe and stick to the same values already on the board or you could use other values. You should be careful about decreasing the voltage, it is generally not recommended but it is ok to increase it. You can increase the capacitance (uf) as you see fit but the larger the voltage and the larger the capacitance, the wider and taller the capacitor. The larger cap may not fit in the place of the original cap."

So if you have an original capacitor value such as 16v 500uf one can use a 16V 1000uf. I bring up this up because capacitors really only cost a few cents versus $3.50 or higher from various speed control manufacturers.

For capacitor replacements on Novak controllers, we recommend only our TransCap modules. They can be used as replacement caps on all racing controllers, brush or brushless. (see various lipo versions) We consider these modules an intrinsic part of our esc design; they are are not only capacitors, but also include two Transient Suppressors and three High Frequency Decoupling Capacitors:
