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.

Industry Leading Software Functions

The Mamba Monster 2 includes a coupon for a free Castle Link USB device. This allows access to the full programming suite of adjustable settings that tune and tweak your vehicle to your preferences, resulting in an incredible RC driving experience.

ESC Features: 

    Powerful Combination
    This combo includes the Mamba Monster 2 controller and the recently updated Castle 1515-2200Kv V2 sensored* motor, which features:

    • Input Voltage range: 2s-6s LiPo
    • Redesigned rotor and stator assemblies.
    • Reduced magnetic cogging, producing less residual drag brake.
    • Increased efficiency, resulting in lower temperatures and longer run times.
    • Smoother start-up, reducing cogging or stuttering when starting from a stop.
    • Rebuildable design allows replacement of front end bell/bearing assembly or rotor/shaft assembly. (see note below)
    • High-Strength Kevlar Wrap and 180C Grade Neodymium Sintered Magnets
    • Oversized NMB Bearings and High-Temperature, High-Purity Copper Windings
    • Castle 10 AWG, High-Strand-Count Silicone-Insulated Wire with 6.5mm Bullet Connectors
    • High-Performance 0.2mm Steel Lamination Stacked Stator
    • Oversized, low-resistance, gold-plated solder tabs
    • Sensor board with High Quality Temperature-Stabilized Sensors
    • T6 Aluminum CNC Machines Front/Rear End bell
    • Proudly Designed and Supported in Kansas, USA.
    • Backed by Castle Creations' 1-YEAR WARRANTY
    Note: 011-0130-00 Rotor Replacement is NOT compatible with the V2 motor. A new rotor replacement will be available in the future. Check back here for updates.

    ESC and Motor Package Includes
    • Mamba Monster 2 ESC
    • 1515-2200kv V2 sensored* brushless motor
    • Coupon for free Castle Link USB adapter
    • Driver's Ed and Quick Start Guide
    • Decal sheet
    Sensored capabilities of the motor cannot be utilized with the Mamba Monster 2. If you require sensored operation you will need a sensored ESC like the Mamba Monster X. The Mamba Monster X paired with the same motor can be found here.

    BEC Specifications: User selectable output between 5 and 7 volts; default 5.5 volts
    Operating Environment: Waterproof design allows for use in nearly any environment. 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.
    Brake: Proportional
    Reversible: Yes, but may be disabled for racing.
    On/Off Switch: Yes
    Cooling Fan: Yes, factory equipped (30mm), fully removable** (see Product Use Statements below)
    Size: Length: 2.09" (53mm)
    Width: 1.93" (49mm)
    Height: 1.44" (36.4mm)
    Weight (with no battery connector): 3.92 oz. (111.g)
    Connectors: 6.5mm female bullets for motor connection.
    Items Needed for Operation: Battery Connector required; Deans Ultra Plugs, Traxxas Power Connectors, E-Flite EC5, or 6.5mm Castle Connectors are recommended.
    Product Use Statements: *Although Mamba 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.

    Telemetry Link Capable: No
    Tech Notes:
    1. Mamba Monster 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, FlightPower Star™ Plug, or Deans® Ultra Plugs

    This combo is a total beast. I tried running it at 6s in a 1/8 nitro buggy conversion, and it was simply impossible... Running it at 3s now 80-100c and it is perfect! I'd attach a photo but cant :(
