Aberdeen... and your basing your opinion on what?

DATA MAN.... not speculation dude....

Now if this is what Align is trying to do to solve any 500 RX issues then they GOT to know something WE DON'T or why the hell would they come up with that?

I am NOT so worried about what this is but more so WHY? I gotta go have a convo with some people today man....

Aberdeen, no offense bud, but Finless is right. You are speculating here.

The fact is, this component will do SOMETHING!!!!

It may be small you are right, but to say it does NOTHING is factually incorrect.

sorry to pick on ya

Yea this was fun until EGO man showed up.

Back to the topic,
I'm sure Align would not be stupid enough to try to sell something that did NOTHING.

I actually think this COULD help. Maybe a little over priced for what it is, but...

Is that supposed to filter noise eminating from the servos, or going to the servos from some other source?

How can it even help in either case if it's in parallel with the other devices, rather than in series?

Because there are some resistant in the wires having a cap near the Rx will help filter out high frequency noise away from the Rx. Even though the rx have some caps in it already, adding additional cap will help. So I think it will do something more than just nothing by adding this device. If this will solve our brown-out problem is a different story.
