Mamba Micro X2, 16.8V, WP Sensored ESC W / 0808-5300KV MOTOR
Product #: 010-0169-02
Putting the X in Extreme!The Mamba Micro X2 is a refresh of our popular 1:18 scale 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 (included 0808 motor is sensorless).
This is the perfect upgrade for 1:18 scale RC vehicles, up to 3S LiPo and weighing in at up to 2lbs. Vehicles include: Losi Mini-T 2.0, Traxxas LaTrax Rally, Traxxas LaTrax Teton, Axial Yeti Jr.
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.
The Mamba Micro X also works well in some 1:10th scale crawlers for low speed operation (no rock racing/hill climbing). You can now purchase the Mamba Micro X2 Crawler Edition ESC paired with our Slate Crawler motors.
