I just replaced the electrolytics in my 32S-3 they were all out of tolerance by at least 50% and one that should have been 4uF was 39pF, question is, although the electrolytics were no good how about the Black Cat ones, c115, c136, c88, c173 do they regularly fail or are they pretty robust, the transmitter works OK, but maybe they are leaky, without removing one end and testing them it is hard to tell. Experience anyone?
