Default Edge 160 HV Spark Arrestor

About to order an Edge 160 HV.

I'd like to wire in a spark arrestor in a 12s setup. Can someone let me know what resistor they've ended up going with?

Failing that - what is the total capacitor value in this ESC?

Thanks!

CC says to use a 1-Ohm resistor to prevent ESC boot up problems. It also messes up the LiPo cell detector so you have to manually set the cutoff voltage.
 
Some have been using higher value resistors with no problems but CC says don’t do it and is it messes up the ESC it might void the warranty. One ohm sounds low but it works very well – I use a 1-ohm 3W resistor for spark suppression on 8s to 12s.
