Mamba Micro X2, 16.8V, WP SENSORED ESC (4.0MM)
Product #: 010-0171-00
Putting the X in Extreme!The Mamba Micro X2 is a refresh of our popular Mamba Micro X. This new ESC increases the maximum input voltage to 4s. We also added DATA LOGGING and our CRYO-DRIVE™ TECHNOLOGY; CryoDrive allows the ESC to run cooler and more efficiently at partial throttle. Like its predecessor, it is waterproof* and has SENSORED MOTOR SUPPORT.
This ESC is ideal for the weight conscious builder or where space is limited, used in low speed crawling or trail running in vehicles weighing up to 8lbs on 2s or 3s; it can also be used in slightly more aggressive setups like rock racing and extended hill climbing on vehicles up to 4lbs. Recommended motors include Castle's "Slate" crawler motors (combos available) and Holmes Hobbies Puller Pro 540 "Stubby" (≤ 2700kv)
Important Product Update, 6/14/2023.
The internal BEC is back! All Micro X2s made on or after June 2023 will again have the internal BEC. You can check the date of manufacture on the side of the ESC box or on the ESCs receiver wire. ESCs made between August 2022 and May 2023 do not have an internal BEC and include an external 10-amp CC BEC; click here for more information.
If you're looking for a more aggressive setup in a heavier rig, like rock racing and extended hill climbing, we recommend you run the Mamba X ESC. Like its predecessor it includes improved features for rock crawling, including active drag brake and drag brake ramp.
