Brute Power and Sheer Stamina!

Castle Creations' introduction of the Mamba Monster was a break-through moment for R/C modelers wanting to experience what seemed to be unobtainable. Brute power and sheer stamina have made this our legacy “power up” for popular 1/8th scale buggies, truggies and on road vehicles and 1/10th scale monster trucks.

The Mamba Monster 2 ESC is capable of 2S LiPo to a maximum of 6S LiPo and is waterproof, which means you can run your vehicle through the morning dew, across the soggy snow or just about anywhere else you’d be interested in running a 1/8th scale RC buggy or truck.

    Items Needed for Operation: Battery Connector required - 6.5mm Castle Connectors are recommended.
    Product Use Statements: *Although Monster 2 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.

    **The cooling fan must be removed prior to driving in wet conditions. It is not waterproof.
    Application Guidelines: Intended for up to 6S (25.2 Volt) operation in vehicles weighing less than 15 lbs, with batteries, ready-to-run.
    Not recommended for use in high speed 1/8th and larger applications (IE Arrma Infraction and Limitless, Traxxas XO-1)

    Castle 1515 2200Kv: Max Cells: 6S Lipo or 16 NiMH
    Max. Recommended Vehicle Weight: Less than 15 lbs, with batteries, ready-to-run with 2200kv motor; no more than 9 lbs with 2650kv motor.
    Programmability: Fully programmable Castle feature set using Castle Link USB adapter (coupon for free Link included) and freely downloadable Castle Link Windows software or the Castle Link iOS App and a B-LINK Bluetooth Adapter.
    Telemetry Link Capable: No
    Tech Notes: Not all LiPos are created equal, and surge ratings should never be used to determine a pack’s suitability for a brushless application. Use the CONTINUOUS C rating only. Mamba Monster setups frequently hit 100+ amps in peaks. We strongly suggest using 5,000 mAh or larger LiPo cells with a discharge rating of at least 30C (or high quality 25C batteries such as Traxxas® Power Cells®). Our experience suggests using only mild gear ratios with NiMH cells. Do not attempt to use NiMH cells in extreme setups.

    Mamba Monster 2 features solder posts, so changing battery wire length and direction is simple for an even more custom install.
