I have an ESC HeliJive 120 HV.
The capasitors have a small dent on them.

Do you know by chance the cost for replacing them if I send it to Kontronik?

Also mine is Ver. 11 . Should I update it to Ver . 13 ?

Had anyone any kind of repair?
Thank you all And Merry Xmas

Kontronik will not repair capacitors.

However, you can order one from them at a nominal fee.

The casing is an injected molding, so any repairs are extremely difficult.

I can repair it myself easily.With a little bigger caps also. But then I will not be able to upgrade it. I will make an H cut in the front just a little wider than the caps.Open the case as a sandwich up and down and leaving the capasitors there standing.

After desoldering and soldering the new ones in blue colour I will apply heated epoxy as butter and close my sandwitch again.

I will keep it pressed down and wipe the excess.

The entire board of the Jive series of ESCs are completely filled with epoxy. You may be able to get the case off but getting to the leads of the caps my be a bear

Not epoxy but just that red thing.
And when you open the pieces of the case you can see-the caps leads.

If you cant ge in to the board close to where the caps are soldered right to the board, just cut the caps off and leave a little of the caps leg, and solder to them.

I assume the Heli Jive 120 is similar, but if you can get to the leads for the caps you may be able to replace them.

You can send it in and they WILL replace if unit is good. It cost me like $150 shipping fedex 2 day is all they use and that is close to $40

I have a 3D heli, I don't understand why it doesn't do 3D

I sent one once and I was told that they do not replace them. They offered me a discount for a new one and I got the new one in the mail a week later.
