(2011) ESC measurements

After a few problems with RC-glitches, I decided to check my receivers supply-voltage, to make sure that wasn't causing problems. The 5 volt is supplied from a Turnigy plush 40A speed controller, and the receiver is a Corona RP6D1. The servos used are 2 normal 2-3 kg.

First measured without load:

With servos moving:

with 50 % throttle:

with 100 % throttle

And a test done with a 1000 uF capacitor connected directly to the receiver.

As it can be seen, the capacitor clearly gives a more stable supply-voltage, but in most cases, it shouldn't be necessary.
