# Is there a benefit to using multiple capacitors on FPV drones?

From what I've heard, you need at least one capacitor on the ESC of a drone so that it can smooth out the voltage spikes to prevent electrical noise and improve the longevity of the ESC. If this is the case, wouldn't having more than one capacitor wired in parallel help further smooth out voltage spikes? Say on a 5'' drone, would it be worth the extra weight to have 3 capacitors instead of 1?

A reason to have more than one would be to adjust the frequency response, as a capacitor's reactance is related to the frequency and the capacitance: $$X_c=\frac{1}{2\pi fC}$$ where $$X_c$$ is the capacitor's reactance, $$f$$ is the frequency of the spike/noise and $$C$$ is the capacitor value.
