This is the Novak Glitch Buster Receiver Capacitor. The Glitch Buster Capacitor is Novak’s weapon in the war against glitching. The same technology that professional racers around the world have been using to fight glitching problems is now available for everyone. The Glitch Buster works by storing power from the BEC, and acting as a filter to eliminate any noises generated by servos that can wreak havoc on your radio system. Another benefit of using Novak’s Glitch Buster is that it reduces the load on the ESC’s BEC, and improves response time, which makes the servo faster! The high-capacity, super low-resistance capacitor comes pre-wired and ready to install into any standard receiver. Simply plug it directly into any open channel or battery slot on the receiver, and experience a glitch-free ride.

Novak Glitch Buster Receiver Capacitor
Really awesome accessory. The capacitance is 5600µF. I wasn't expecting it to be as big as it is, but it is still very, very light. I use a castle creations Mamba Monster ESC with a built in BEC and a JR Z9100T in my brushless muggy. I also have a Airtronics MT-4. When I look at the telemetry on my transmitter, the voltage will drop significantly when I steer the car to the left or the right. If I jerk the wheel of the transmitter to the right or left, the voltage periodically drops so low that the receiver no longer has enough power to send a telemetry signal to the transmitter, so the transmitter will, for a second, start its low voltage alarm. With the capacitor installed however, this problem goes almost entirely away. The voltage will still periodically dip just as low, but only if I am purposefully turning left and right as fast as I can. It's hard to make the voltage dip that low with the capacitor installed, and it's difficult to keep the voltage above the alarm voltage without the capacitor installed.)

I put a new savox servo in my wraith to handle the bigger tires, but unfortunately I was getting brown outs of power, after reading several reviews I decided to give the novack glitch capacitor a shot. Man I'm glad I did, although a tad big "bout the size around of a nickel " I was able to secure it nicely and tucked away. And this little gem fixed all my brown out and glitchy servo issues. And I believe it has turned the truck for the better, I will be buying more for my other rc's, If your having glitchy issues give this a try)

5600uF rating. Great for High voltage servos to 'store' energy, but is a bit big. Realize Spektrum also makes one and stores less power and is smaller.)

This may not seem like much of a upgrade, but I was able to eliminate the 4 AA's or receiver battery in my Ve8 which had no mounting position for the batteries. The capacitor is neatly tucked away with the receiver and no glitches.)

Bought this for my savage monster truck as I added High torque savox digital servo 444 oz had no glitches until a week or so then it started twitching the brake/ throttle servo and it was doing indos because the breaks were locking up at random. I bougt the Novak glitch buster and it stopped immediately! Great product so far.)

I had massive glitches with my savöx sw-1210sg. The BEC of the holmes torquemaster br-xl esc collapsed as soon as the steering servo moved. I installed the glitch buster and glitches are gone. Works perfect and is worth the price.)

I bought one of these for my touring car. I was having glitch issues with my Savox servo. I plugged this thing in an poof! No more glitching. It works great!)

I love this product...I run Mamba Max Pros which have switching BEC's and on some models I still have issues with cross glitching... these glitch busters do their best and cure all my issues and make it possible to run stronger servos on all my racers..I run them on my kits...TEN_SCTE...22T...XS SS...and EXO.... great unit I recommend for anyone who may have issues with glitching between servo and throttle. An inexpensive fix for most glitching issues)
