Putting the X in Extreme!
Mamba Monster X is our latest 1:8 scale and Monster truck controller capable of 2S - 6S LiPo (4s max with included 2650kv 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 buggies and on-road vehicles as well as 1:10 scale monster trucks weighing up 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.
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.
Sensored Motor Capable (with optional Sensor Harness)
Mamba Monster X can also run sensored brushless motors with the purchase of an optional Sensor Harness. 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 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.
Mamba Monster X is telemetry ready, which means owners of the 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.
This combo includes the Mamba Monster X controller and the Neu-Castle 1512-2650Kv motor, which features:
- High quality oversized bearings
- Sintered Neodymium magnets
- Superior electromagnetic design
- Rigorous quality control
*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.
