Building the VFE Bumble Bee I have a question
« on: April 25, 2020, 06:59:37 PM »
Is there any reason I can't use a .680 MLCC 50v in place of the radial electrolytic .680?

Generally, you can always sub a film or MLCC for an electrolytic. There are some cases where it might not be ideal but with the Bumblee that particular cap is just setting the decay of the envelope. As long as it fits, it can sits.
No matter where you go, there I am. Watching you.
