Low frequency ESC - need help!

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have a very old low frequency ESC - made by Tekin, I believe. Its one of the ones thats able to handle a large number of cells - like 18 or something rediculous like that.
Anyways, as I recall, the old low frequency ESC's required the use of different capacitors on the motor than the later-to-come high frequency ESC's (the ones that make the motor go beep). I just can't recall how to wire up those capicitors and which values to use.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

I know the real old school Tekins, ESC100's, there was 3 capacitors, one "can type" it was 47uf 16v that went across "+" and "-" and the two smaller "disc" ones, that went from "+" to "ground" and "-" to "ground" but I can't remeber their values. might be .1uf?? I must be old school since I still carry these in my toolbox !!
