||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 access both wires into a single Castle Link connection. You can then analyze this data and make adjustments to the ESC to maximize both performance and battery life.
||Mamba Monster X features the addition of a new, programmable AUX 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 or the Castle Link iOS App. Once you have programmed the functionality of the AUX wire, that setting can then be adjusted on-the-go from a compatible transmitter.

||Fully programmable Castle feature set using Castle Link USB adapter (coupon for free Castle Link adapter included in package) and freely downloadable Castle Link Windows software or the Castle Link iOS App and a B-LINK Bluetooth Adapter. (A small subset of the settings available through Castle Link Windows software can be accessed via manual programming through the transmitter stick).

||Mamba Monster X is telemetry ready, which means owners of Futaba T4PX Transmitters will be able to 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.
||Castle Creations, Inc. warrants this product to be free from manufacturing defects for a period of one year from date of purchase.Click here for additional information about our Tier 1 and Tier II warranty.
