MONSTER X 25.2V ESC, 8A PEAK BEC W / 1512-1800KV SENSORED MOTOR

Product #: 010-0145-05

 

Putting the X in EXTREME

Mamba Monster X is our latest 1:8 scale and Monster truck controller capable of 2S - 6S LiPo (4s maximum with included 1512 - 1800kv motor), 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 off-road and on-road vehicles as well as 1:10 scale 4WD SCT up to 9 lbs. . It also comes standard with a highly efficient, 30mm ESC cooling fan. Mamba Monster X also features updated Audible Alerts that will notify you of possible issues with calibrations and error conditions to help diagnose 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!

Now With a Sensored Motor!
The Mamba Monster X is now paired with our brand new sensored 15xx series motors. We have taken our award winning 15xx series motors and added sensor capabilities. So now you can all of the torque and performance you know and love and have even more control! We still use the same high quality components as our sensorless motors, such as ultra-thin stator laminations, high temperature sintered neodymium magnet and high RPM ABEC3 bearings.

Why sensored? Some drivers and applications are better suited for sensored motors. Some drivers need smoother throttle control in racing environments. When coming out of a corner a sensorless motor may not provide optimal throttle control and can cause the motor power to surge a bit. With sensored motors the throttle will feel smoother and more linear which allows for more precise throttle management. If you are simply bashing and not racing on a track you will most likely not see the full benefits from a sensored operation.

The Auxiliary Advantage

Mamba Monster X features the addition of a new, programmable Auxiliary Wire that allows you to make “on-the-go” adjustments to several settings such as torque control, and max throttle, and 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.

Mamba Monster X can capture and record performance data from your last couple of runs, commonly referred to as data logging. This data can be downloaded via the Castle Link USB programmer; you can use the Quick Connect Duo (sold separately) to allow you to quickly access the ESC's receiver wire without having to disconnect from your receiver. You can then analyze this data and make adjustments to the ESC to maximize both performance and battery life.


Telemetry Capability

Mamba Monster X is telemetry ready, which means owners of the Futaba T4PX Transmitters can purchase the Castle Creations Telemetry Link for S.BUS2. Real-time data such as ESC temperature, voltages and RPM can be monitored to ensure performance advantages and spare you the “unknown” parameters that all R/C enthusiasts experience at some point. Telemetry data provides another level of protection and can increase performance.

The 1512-1800kv version is capable of 2S to 4S LiPo and is perfect for 1/8 scale off-road and on-road vehicles as well as 1:10 scale 4WD SCT up to 9 lbs. Paired with our Mamba Monster X ESC you will have all the power your 1/8th scale vehicle demands with the smoother throttle control of a sensored motor.

Package Includes:

  • 1/8th scale Mamba Monster X ESC
  • 1512-1800kv sensored brushless motor
  • 210mm length sensor wire (for sensored operation)

Product Use Statements: *Although Mamba Monster X and Castle brushless motors are waterproof, they are not intended for operation while completely submerged in liquid. They can corrode when exposed to corrosive materials, such as salt water. Always rinse the ESC and motor with clean water after exposure to corrosives or dirt. While the motor and controller may be waterproof, we suggest users confirm that the rest of their vehicle, including the batteries, servos, radio and chassis are also waterproof before exposing them to liquids of any kind.

Tech Notes:
  1. Mamba Monster X setups frequently hit 100+ amps in peaks and not all LiPos are created equal. Surge ratings should never be used to determine a pack's suitability for a brushless application. Recommended battery capacity for 1:8th scale vehicles is 5000mAh. We recommend using 30C continuous discharge or higher LiPo batteries (or high quality 25C batteries such as Traxxas® Power Cell).
  2. Our experience  suggests using only mild gear ratios with NiMH cells. Do not attempt to use NiMH cells in extreme setups.
  3. Applying voltages higher than 25.2V will cause irreparable damage to ESC.
  4. We recommend a high-current connector designed for high-powered electric systems, rated for 70+ amps. Invest in connector sets made for high-powered electric systems such as our CCBULLET 6.5mm, Castle 6.5mm Polarized Connectors, Traxxas® Power Connectors, or Deans® Ultra Plugs

Tech Notes:

Running modes: SMARTSENSE™, Sensored, Sensorless with Castle sensored capable ESCs.

Water Resistant Design: The sensor board is coated with silicone conformal coating to protect the sensors from moisture. The sensor connections are not water resistant; water can cause signal loss which could result in loss of sensored capabilities. Castle recommended applying dielectric grease to the outside of the sensor wire connections after installation of the wire. Routine maintenance is recommended after running in wet conditions. Please refer to this document for running and maintaining motors in wet environments.
