Just wondering what kind of ripple you guys are seeing in the data logs with your Mamba 8s escs. I know the stock Spektrum esc came with a cap pack and wondering if I might have to add one to the Castle ESC.
so you noticed no difference in adding a rk cap pack? I find that hard to believe.Your going to see it on the DL, never will notice any difference with a pack or without.. Some guys are going to jump in here and say they use one and that's fine. Placebo, psychosomatic.. who knows.. I have 4 RK's and use 0 because they did nothing but change numbers on paper.
I didn't see anything other than numbers on the DL. No extra speed, no temp difference.Depends on what your doing, batteries,gearing. ect. I use cap packs and speedrun but I'm seeing around 1.4v-1.5v on 8s around 5% ripple
so you noticed no difference in adding a rk cap pack? I find that hard to believe.
Amps are pulled, volts are pushed. Pulled amps are what creates heat. That esc didn’t get any hotter or any cooler running with or without a cap pack. The ESC “damaging“ Amps would all be contributed to heat which wasn’t there.I will have to pull my logs again but we used to use them in the boats because they can pull some serious ESC damaging amps. I am pretty sure on my last log I saw a spike of 5 volts....that is a pretty bad ripple and the last thing I want to do is burn the ESC. All the cap pack does it just supply the ESC with that first big spike of voltage when you punch the throttle. They will not make anything run faster or cooler.
