    Data East Star Wars R2D2 motor capacitor

    Hi All,

    I'm looking for a capacitor for my R2D2 motor.

    Is anyone able to confirm if this is compatible?

    Cheers,

    not being familiar with the motor, I googled it.
    not seeing a capacitor.
    what are the specs of the one you have?.....looking at another post of yours, guessing you don't have one?
    ahhh, just found a pic with a cap across the motor wires in a plug, is this what you want to replace?
    some more reading....on Pinside the cap you want is also on the Death Star.
    my understanding of the cap you need, being a 1M, is a 1uF +/- 20%, not a .1 (100nF) as you have put a link to.
    can you post a pic of the one on the Death Star?
