Is there a simple method to determine the minimum size of Power Distributor that's required for a certain ship to boost?
I know you can fit just about any Power Distributor to any ship (up to the maximum size permitted for that ship). But if the capacitors in your PD are too small, then you won't be able to boost.
The problem is, I haven't seen any easy way to determine a minimum size without taking it out for a test flight. This makes the process of selecting a small distributor (e.g.: for a Planetary Explorer build) tedious and costly.
I know I could just check shipbuilding websites like Coriolis, but I'd really prefer to be able to do this independently. Are the necessary metrics readily available in-game? If so, what do I need to look for?
Note: I play on XB1, so any mods or other under-the-hood inspection methods are not valid solutions here.
