B-Link Bluetooth Adapter

Product #: 011-0135-00

CURRENT LEAD TIME: 3-4 WEEKS


Control at your fingertips!

Castle Link™ ESC tuning is an essential component for customizing vehicle performance for many Castle Creations’ customers. While the controllers are plug and play, optimizing a Castle ESC through the Castle Link Programming Suite unlocks the full range of capabilities that set Castle apart from the competition. Users enjoy the ability to adjust many variables to enhance their experience including throttle, braking curve, drag brake, reverse type and more. The Castle B•LINK™ Bluetooth™ Adapter enables users to wirelessly program settings on current Castle Creations ESCs, many older models and the BEC 2.0/BEC Pro on Apple iOS devices and now Android devices!

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Apple devices require iOS version 10.0 or higher. Click HERE for a list of compatible devices.
  • Android devices require version 5.0 or higher.

A complete listing of compatible ESCs and accessories can be found here.

The free Castle Link app for iOS is available on the Apple App Store for use with iPhones and iPads, and Google Play for Android devices. Once downloaded, it does not require a data connection and can be used anywhere, including remote areas.

FEATURES:
  • WIRELESS BLUETOOTH COMMUNICATION allows you to interface with most Castle Link compatible ESCs and accessories to change parameters and update  firmware.
  • COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT at 1.20" x .81" x .25" (30.48mm x 20.55mm x 6.55mm) and 0.23oz (6.62g), it can be installed in the vehicle or airframe without significantly increasing model weight.
  • CONVENIENT WATERPROOF DESIGN allows you to quickly adjust settings in the field without disconnecting or disassembling the model. It can stay installed in the model or be easily swapped between models.
  • FREE APP DOWNLOAD is readily available in the Apple App Store and Google Play. Once downloaded it does not require a data connection so it can be used in the most remote of areas and won’t use data.
  • EASY TO USE application can be used with multiple B-Link Bluetooth Adapters or can store model information and allow you to use one adapter on multiple models.
  • PASSCODE PROTECTED with (user-selectable) 4-digit code to prevent unwanted tampering with your settings.
  • SYNC information between multiple devices by creating a free account (requires internet connection to sync database).
 
   

    Note: Castle B-Link Bluetooth adapter is not compatible with Castle Telemetry Link for Spektrum X-Bus and Castle Telemetry Link for Futaba S.Bus2. The B-Link can be used to adjust settings on the ESC; but it cannot be run in conjunction with the Telemetry Links.

    Need to Fix Current Limiting Save Bug
    July 4, 2020
    Good product but currently collecting dust -- literally. If you modify the "current limiting" setting, then save settings, the current liming value will default to 200A. In fact, if I set the current limiting value to more than 200A on PC -- then use B-Link to adjust and save settings other values (yet do not change current limiting), current limiting defaults to 200A.
    I have had this since fall and no update as indicated by support. I understand that Covid-19 has affected R&D schedules (as a PM, I am in the same boat) -- but status would be nice.
    Will definitely change score when resolved. :-)

    Stop Your Whining Android Users
    July 6, 2019
    Stop bashing a product you can't even fairly evaluate. CC already said an Android version is on the way, so stop your whining already. I'm an Apple-only guy and didn't whine when they didn't support Mac OS X systems. I just created a Windblows partition on my laptop and boot into Windblows anytime I need to mod an ESC. This is a great solution for Apple users and so much simpler to use in the field than lugging around a laptop. Kudos to Castle Creations for engineering a great product like this. Enjoy the Android support when it gets here. Be patient grasshopper.

    Needs an android app
    July 3, 2019
    Please make an android app.
    There people outside of the United States aren't very fond of apple and their overpriced products.
    If you look at the global Mobile OS usage, you're on the wrong side.
    Android 72.48%
    iOS 26.64%

    Mobile OS Market Share
    June 5, 2019
    So the Bluetooth adapter and software were developed for iOS only, which has a global market share of just 14.9%, vs Android with 85.1% (via IDC.com). This gap is projected to widen between now and 2022 by 2 to 4%.

    Hopefully an Android version is in the works. 85% is a lot of lost consumers.

    Love the wireless connectivity but without it working on Android is a huge minus. And the other downfall is you cannot connect wirelessly to your data log. I have had this awhile and seems like nothing gets done to fix it. Not very happy due to those reasons

    March 17, 2019
    Having previously used a Castle Link with an Axial ESC and 10A BEC, when I purchased my new Mamba X I decided to get this new B-Module. I am glad I did, works great and no having to disconnect everything to re-program it. I only wish the promised Android version would come out soon so I wouldn't have to use my work iPhone.

    Make it for Android users.
    March 5, 2019
    Its great. But limited to people who only have apple products. Making it versatile would make it perfect so both android and iOS/apple users can use it. Please make one for android or a firmware that makes it for use with android.

    Works effortlessly and his I feel essential to castle ESC’s. Definitely enhances experience. Links while vehicle running and disconnects without power off so cool.
