You may be able to get it much cheaper, Mind telling me the rating? There should be a white strip down one side with it printed on there. Cap's are super inexpensive if you buy them from an electronics store. like $.50 - $2.00.
You'll also need some basic soldering skills. It's not hard but you could ruin your board if you don't know what you're doing. (Lifting a pad will make it almost useless.)
Cap's have a tendency to explode if you put them in backwards. In one of my first Avionics classes a classmate wasn't paying attention and sent one through the ceiling. The small ones are the ones that'll do it too, big ones just kind of fizzle.

If you have a radio shack close you can see if they have one in stock.
Bowmasta, what branch did you serve? I was 6322 Avionics in the Marine Corps. I was O level so we didn't get to mess with internals.

Civilian. I studied Avionics because I was worried I wouldn't pass the FAA's flight physical. (My branch of the family has somewhat bad eyes). I was honestly really surprised when I passed in less than 15 minutes. Its always good to have a backup plan, plus an NCATT plus other certs look good on a resume.
My dad was in the Army though, 1-44th ADA for a number of years. Both my American granddads were in the service too towards the end of WWII, one was in the Army and the other was in the Navy.

I'm not sure I would have had the same satisfaction working on aircraft in the civilian world.
Sorry for the thread hijack TristanV33. Keep us posted on getting the E99 fixed.

So the solenoid clicks but it doesn't shoot?
Make sure your battery is good, it needs a 9.6 volt for it to work. We had a spyder with the same problem, my coworker worked on it for probably 30 minutes before I just grabbed a different battery and it worked great.
I just did some research and its either the Cap or the battery, since you replaced the cap its the battery.
Make sure its a 9.6volt, they run like $13.

I'm not sure, I haven't visited in a while. I know there are Spyder branded ones though that are rechargeable.
