Phoenix Ice logs incredibly useful data directly in the controller. No more guessing about the performance of your system – now you’ll have hard numbers to prove it!

Phoenix Ice Line

The heat sink is machined specifically for the controller and is bonded directly to the circuit boards for optimum heat uptake. We strongly recommend that users take advantage of the heat sink version wherever possible.

The next generation of Castle air controllers, the Phoenix Ice Series.

Phoenix Ice brings the ability to run at input voltages of up to 8S* (33.6) and use the built in switching BEC to output up to 5 amps of servo power all the way up to the 8S max*!

Switching BEC
The Phoenix Ice switching BEC output is factory set to 5.0V. Users may use Castle Link to select their desired voltage between 5.0V and 7.0V, in 0.1V increments.

Data Logging
Ice brings another incredibly useful feature, extensive data logging capabilities. The controllers are able to measure and record many parameters at sample rates that you choose between 10 samples per second and 1 sample per second. Data points include:

  • Battery Voltage
  • Battery Ripple
  • Battery Current
  • Controller Temperature
  • Controller Input Throttle
  • Controller Motor Power Output
  • Motor RPM

This data is stored directly in the controller and may be accessed once the run is over using the Castle Link USB adapter (sold separately) and Castle Link software (available free at castlecreations.com). The Max Log Size is 21,504 bytes, everything takes one byte except for motor rpm which takes two.

  • Logging 'Battery Current' at only a 1 sample / second - 358 minutes of logging time (almost 6 hrs)
  • Logging 'Motor RPM' at only 1 sample / second - 179 minutes of logging time
  • Logging everything at only 1 sample / second - 44 minutes of logging time
  • Logging everything at 10 samples / second - 4 minutes and 28 seconds

Two versions: Heat Sink 8S max input and Heat Shrink 6S max input
The Ice comes in two versions, standard version which is optimized for demanding RC heli and sport aircraft applications and a Lite version packaged in heat shrink for users with tight fuselages.

All Phoenix Ice are ready to fly out of the bag, no programming is necessary for most aircraft applications. The controllers are set at the factory for Auto Lipo detect/cutoff operation and they are tuned for optimum outrunner performance.

Advanced users will find the incredible programmability of the Phoenix Ice allows for performance characteristics tailored exactly to their desires.

Heli users are raving about the performance of Castle’s programmable helicopter modes which include options to directly enter desired governed headspeeds as numerical values! Every heli power combination requires slightly varying governor gains, Castle makes these easy to tweak and the net result is a rock solid tail.

We now offer the Quick Connect for more convenient data log downloading and adjusting controller settings. The quick connect is a special harness that allows you to keep the speed controller plugged into the receiver when connecting to the Castle Link. It has an extra 12" servo lead that can be placed wherever it is convenient to plug in the link, while your speed controller stays connected to the receiver. No more digging into your setup to get to the receiver just to pull off your data or change settings!

Designed in Kansas. Components manufactured in the USA, Mexico, and China.

Castle Creations, Inc. warrants this product to be free from manufacturing defects for a period of one year from date of purchase.

*8S rating is for standard Phoenix Ice only. Phoenix Ice Lite has a maximum voltage of 6s.

*Ratings are determined with a 5mph airflow on the ESC.
**The Phoenix Ice Lite 200 controller is only intended to be used in applications where the controller is placed in a very high airflow. A 20mph airflow over the controller is required in order to achieve the advertised ratings.Use the standard Ice 200 or Ice HV 160 wherever possible
