Castle Creations is proud to announce our new flagship surface product, the MAMBA X EXTREME 1:10 SCALE WATERPROOF ESC. We at Castle wanted to address three main concepts while designing a new ESC for the modern day RC enthusiast; VERSATILITY, RELIABILITY, and PERFORMANCE. These are the pillars of the Mamba X design and the driving forces behind the feature-packed controller.
The Mamba X is extremely versatile, capable of powering a wide variety of applications ranging from 2S to 6S and vehicles ranging from 1/10th scale to 1/8th scale*.The Mamba X with 1412-3200Kv sensored motor is perfect for 2WD and 4x4 short course trucks, monster trucks and rock racers running up to 3s LiPo and weighing up to 6.5 lbs; it can be run on a 4s LiPo with very conservative gearing and keep a close eye on temperatures. It is a cooling running torque animal for lighter 1/10th scale 2WD stadium trucks and buggies running up to a 4s LiPo.

*In 1/8th scale setups, the Mamba X is intended to be used for off-road racing in buggies weighing up to 9 lbs (including batteries and ready-to-run). In these 1/8th scale racing setups, the Mamba X should be run at 4S Lipo (16.8V) max and is recommended to be paired with the Castle 1512-1800Kv (P/N: 060-0062-00) or Castle 1515-2200Kv (P/N: 060-0063-00) motor, with appropriate gearing only.
When paired with a Castle 4-POLE 12-SLOT SENSORED MOTOR SmartSense software, enabled by default in the Castle Link Programming Suite, will use the motor's sensors to provide smooth starts, excellent torque, and low-speed drivability. Once the motor is turning, it seamlessly transitions to Castle's ULTRA-EFFICIENT sensorless mode with electric timing. Smooth sensored startups and high-efficiency sensorless running makes the Mamba Monster X 8S system produce more power and less heat. QUIETSENSE is an innovative advancement in the design of sensored motors to deliver the highest precision and most efficient startup.
The Mamba X allows on-the-fly adjustments to be made through the AUX wire once enabled in Castle Link. Once you have selected an AUX wire function, that setting can then be tuned from your transmitter while driving. Torque control, max throttle, max brake and drag brake adjustments are a sampling of the available modes. This real-time tuning allows you to quickly and easily fine-tune your system.
Enabled by default, the Mamba X captures and records performance data from your vehicle. This allows you to view a detailed turn-by-turn record of what your ESC actually experienced during the run. You will be able to record real-time data such as motor RPM, battery current and voltage, ESC and motor temperature, throttle input, and more. Download and analyze the collected data via Castle Link and make adjustments to maximize both performance and battery life. You can use the Quick Connect Duo (sold separately) to allow you to access both wires into a single Castle Link connection.
For over 20 years Castle engineers have been setting the bar for industry leading software functionality. The Castle Link Programming Suite is your ticket to creating the perfect setup. To gain access to the host of tuning parameters, simply redeem the coupon for the Castle Link adapter included with your Mamba X purchase or download the Castle Link iOS App and purchase the B-Link Bluetooth Adapter. Download the simple to install software from our website and you are ready to personalize your controller's parameters. Don't forget to use the check for updates feature in Castle Link to download new software as it becomes available. New features are yours at no cost, a perk for choosing Castle
Mamba X is telemetry ready, which means owners of Futaba T4PX Transmitters will be able to purchase the Castle Creations 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.
Housed in a rugged CNC-machined aluminum case and then potted in waterproof epoxy. This not only protects the electronics but ensures any heat generated in the controller can easily be dissipated through the case.
Mamba 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.
