Hi Guys,

not interested in floging dead horses, I think Tekin are doing a great job providing this level of consultation and support to their users.

My question is this, can the brownout problem be resolved with the use of a cap connected to the reciver?

I ask, because, back in the brushed days, I would have laps missed when racing modified on carpet with foam. We eventually worked out that because the scoring loop was located on a corner exit where the car was accelerating, that the current draw from the motor was causing the transponder (and probably the Rx and servo) to lose power. I solved the problem by connecting a 4400uf cap to my reciver.

Thanks
Mark
