Mamba Micro X Extreme 1:18 Scale Combo with 0808-5300Kv Motor

Product #: 010-0147-02

UPC code:819326011061

The Mamba Micro X has been discontinued. It has been replaced by the improved Mamba Micro X2.

Putting the X in Extreme!

Mamba Micro X is our latest 1:18 scale controller capable of 2S - 3S LiPo, with an 2 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 2WD or 4WD vehicles up to 2 lbs.
Not intended for 1/16th scale or 1/14th scale vehicles (IE Losi Mini-8ight/T, Traxxas Mini E-Revo)

The Auxiliary Advantage.
Mamba Micro 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. Mamba Micro 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.

Telemetry Capability
The Mamba Micro X is telemetry ready, which means owners of Futaba T4PX Transmitters will be able to purchase the Castle 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.

Mighty Mini Combination
This combo includes the Mamba Micro X controller and our lightweight, yet powerful, 0808-5300Kv motor.

*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.

Awesome esc and motor
July 16, 2018
I bought this setup from my local hobby shop and it’s an ok setup for 1/18scale 4x4 little monster trucks I have it in a Traxxas latrax Teton and so far it’s been good besides the brown wire came out of the wire harness bc of how they have the receiver under this box thing and the esc goes right in front of it so when you bolt down the black box it pulled my wires and why do you know it pulled out the brown wire so now I got to find a way to fix it or buy a replacement wire harness from castle creations it’s like five bucks so it’s not all that bad of news but yet to see it wheelie on command like I seen on YouTube with there mamba micro x esc and 0808 5300kv motor just like o got but I haven’t got to play with it to much bc of that wire getting pulled out but for the most part it’s a fun quick little truck I don’t know about it being any quicker or faster then the stock brushed motor it came with but I haven’t got to mess with the gearing at all or the castle link computer controls either

Great Motor/ESC
July 9, 2017
Great motor just wish the motor shaft didn't snap, but it was probably just a factory defect, but it's ok because Castle took great care of me and they are replacing it no questions asked, they stand behind their great products.
