Default Still lost, caps on AF?

Still trying to get somekind of answer, in the LMH book it says not to ad any caps to motor leads and motor can, states will interfere with operation of speed control, states fusion35 has caps for IF on controller. What is everybody doing with the change to AF?

The LMH manual is wrong. You ALWAYS need the caps on a brushed motor. You won't have any problems with your esc. I have the caps on my AF, it's working good with no glitches.

With the AF you need 3 caps. One between the motor terminals and one from each terminal,-+, to the motor case. ALSO, with the Castle esc, there is a Shottky diode that goes between the motor terminals. The silver band on the diode goes to the + terminal. Hope this helps. BTW, ask questions here before going to LMH. They can be a pain at times.
