Putting the X in Extreme!
Mamba Micro X Crawler edition ESC is our latest offering for the
crawling crowd. 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)
If you're looking for a more aggressive setup in a heavier rig, like
Note: Use of an external BEC is required if running a high power or digital servo.
This SPECIAL EDITION of the Mamba Micro X includes motor solder
posts with 16 AWG wire and 4mm female bullets for the motor connection;
it also includes the matching 4mm male bullets to attach to your motor.
The Auxiliary Advantage.
Mamba Micro X features the addition of a new, programmable Auxiliary
Wire that allows you to make “on-the-go” adjustments to several settings
such as torque control, and max throttle, and fine-tune the performance
of your ESC right from the transmitter using an auxiliary channel on
the receiver. The AUX wire function is disabled by default but is
programmable via Castle Link. Once you have programmed the functionality
of the AUX wire, that setting can then be adjusted on-the-go from a
compatible transmitter. Try out the brand new Crawler Mode for incredible versatility!
The Mamba Micro X is telemetry ready, which means owners of Futaba T4PX or 7PX Transmitters will be able to purchase the Castle 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.
