    I am working on a RC plane that is powered by 8 1.5v solar planel but i am having trouble maintaing the power to fly then came with an idea of puting a capacitor on it but i don't know how to???????? :confused: :confused: :confused: please HELP!!!!

    THANK YOU :D :)

    Don't post multiple questions asking the same thing.

    What voltage and current does your motor need and what current can the solar panels produce?

    My guess is that the motor required far more power than the panels produce.

    Sure, you could use a capacitor to store power for a while, then pass it to the motor (you would require more than just a capacitor) but the motor might run for a fraction of a second each couple off seconds (or even less frequently).

    For continuous operation, you gain nothing, and add weight.
