Mamba Monster X Extreme 1:8 Scale ESC
Product #: 010-0145-00
Putting the X in Extreme!
Mamba Monster X is our latest 1:8 scale and Monster truck controller capable of 2S - 6S LiPo, with an 8 amp peak BEC - and, it’s waterproof*, so you can run your vehicle through morning dew, across soggy snow, or a muddy trail. This is the perfect upgrade for 1:8 scale buggies, truggies and on-road vehicles as well as 1:10 scale monster trucks weighing up to 15 lbs with our Neu-Castle 1515 2200kv motor. It also comes standard with a highly efficient, 30mm ESC cooling fan. Mamba Monster X also features updated Audible Alerts that will notifyyou of possible issues with calibrations and error conditions to helpdiagnose problems in the field.
New Firmware Available! Version 2.02 offers improved low speed control, stronger drag brake, new Aux Wire Mode "Crawler/Rock Race", and MUCH more. Check out all of the changes here and be sure to update your new Mamba X via the Castle Link!
Mamba Monster X features the addition of a new, programmable Auxiliary Wire that allows you to make an “on-the-go” adjustment. Choose from several settings such as torque control, max throttle, or drag brake to fine-tune the performance of your ESC right from the transmitter using an auxiliary channel on the receiver. The AUX wire function is disabled by default but is programmable via Castle Link. Once you have programmed the functionality of the AUX wire, that setting can then be adjusted on-the-go from a compatible transmitter.
Sensored Motor Capable
Mamba Monster X can also be configured to run sensored brushless motors with the included Sensor Harness (standard sensor wire not included). This sensored-motor capability opens up a whole new segment of R/C enthusiasts who will now get to experience a Mamba Monster X-equipped racer, rock racer, or rock crawler.
Mamba Monster X can capture and record performance data from your lastcouple of runs, commonly referred to as data logging. This data can bedownloaded via the Castle Link USB programmer; you can use the QuickConnect Duo (sold separately) to allow you to quickly access the ESC'sreceiver wire without having to disconnect from your receiver. You canthen analyze this data and make adjustments to the ESC to maximize bothperformance and battery life.
Mamba Monster X is telemetry ready,which means owners of the Futaba T4PX Transmitters will be able to purchasethe Castle Creations Telemetry Link for S.BUS2. Real-time data such asESC temperature, voltages and RPM can be monitored to ensure performanceadvantages and spare you the “unknown” parameters that all R/Centhusiasts experience at some point. Telemetry data provides anotherlevel of protection and can increase performance.
*Not intended for operation while submerged in liquid. If unit is operated in wet conditions, rinse with fresh water to remove dirt or corrosives, then fully dry unit.
