PHOENIX EDGE LITE 200 AMP ESC, 8S / 34V WITH 5 AMP BEC
Product #: 010-0109-00
Lose the Weight, Gain the Edge!
Phoenix Edge Series ESCs are the next evolution in speed controller technology. The white user-programmable auxiliary wire can be used for featuressuch as helicopter governor gain input adjustments mid-flight, serving as anaudible beacon after an “unexpected landing”, acting as an RPM output for3-axis gyros that support RPM sensors, be used as an ESC arming lock (couponfor free Arming Lockout Key included), or as a receiver arming lock. Combinedwith data logging, access to Castle’s industry leading software functions, and USB programming capability via Castle Link USB adapter (coupon included) or the Castle Link iOS App and B-LINK Bluetooth Adapter, Phoenix Edge offers unparalleled versatility.
Phoenix Edge Lite controllers offer all the amazing features and functionality as the regular Edge series with a reduced size and weight.

*RC HOBBY APPLICATION RATING: 200 amps with appropriate cooling.Phoenix Edge Lite controllers are designed without a heat-sink forapplications with extreme air-flow, such as EDF planes, or applicationswith average current requirements much less than peak currentrequirements. Controller temperature must never exceed 100C (212F).Exceeding current or temperature ratings may damage components andshorten the life of the ESC. Always verify system current draw atfull-throttle. Decrease load or increase airflow to decrease the ESC’soperating temperature.
**Peak indicates amperage sustainable for 0.5 seconds – long enoughfor most servos’ current draw transients. Your setup may vary. Alwaysconfirm servo current draw before the first flight of the model.
This is a high power product with the potential to be very dangerous. Please read the safety information before use. This product may contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and or birth defects or other reproductive harm.
U.S. Patent # 7400103, 7492122, 7579796, 7740516, 8287328, 8678875, and 8905814 B2 - Other patents pending.
Controller designed, and circuit boards manufactured, in Olathe, KS. USA
Controller assembled in Olathe, KS USA
Available using Castle Link USB adapter and the Castle Link Windows software to read, analyze and store the data recorded on the ESC.
Power System Alerts:
The Edge ESCs are programmed to sound a number of tunes and codes using the motor as well as flashing LED patterns to alert users to certain conditions regarding their power system, such as over temperature, excessive load and locked head speed.
The Edge ESCs offer an AUX LINE, which is the extra white wire connected to the receiver cable. This line may be used for a variety of tasks such as helicopter governor gain input adjustments mid-flight, serve as an audible beacon after an "unexpected landing", act as an RPM output for 3-axis gyros that support RPM sensors, be used as an ESC arming lock (coupon for free Arming Lockout Key included) or as a receiver arming lock.
Telemetry has the potential not only to improve the safety of our models by monitoring battery voltages, ESC temperature, and other critical parameters, but it also creates other opportunities to get even more fun out of flying because you’ve essentially reduced the risks of “unknown” inevitable crashes. Think of the benefits to be had from alarms that will sound to warn you when there's interference about or if your receiver battery is running unexpectedly low. Requires purchase of Castle Telemetry Link for S.BUS2 (Item # 010-0152-00) and compatible Futaba Radio or Castle Telemetry Link for X-BUS (Item# 010-0148-00) and a compatible Spektrum Radio.
Arming Lockout Key: When the Arm Lockout Key is in the socket, the controller will be incapable of arming. (coupon for Arm Lockout Key and Harness included with EDGE purchase)
Castle Creations, Inc. warrants this product to be free from manufacturing defects for a period of one year from date of purchase.
Fully programmable Castle feature set using Castle Link USB adapter (coupon for free Castle Link adapter included in package) and freely downloadable Castle Link Windows software or the Castle Link iOS App and a B-LINK Bluetooth Adapter. ( A small subset of the settings available through Castle Link Windows software can be accessed via manual programming through the transmitter stick).
Users will receive free access to all firmware updates, including added features sets using the Castle Link USB Programming Kit
Castle Link Compatible
With the Castle Link USB Programming Kit you can use your Windows™ PC toeasily program your controller. Castle Link includes all code for allCastle Link compatible hobby products in one convenient download. Note:Castle Link software requires a Castle Link USB Adapter and a computerthat is running Windows. Castle Link is compatible with Windows Vista,Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. Macintosh users may take advantageof software such as Parallels Desktop, VMware Fusion, or Apple's BootCamp along with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10 to runthe Castle Link software, provided the Macintosh has an Intelprocessor. Macintosh installation is not supported by Castle Creations.
