Mamba-XL-X-ESC-700w copy

After much anticipation the awesome Castle Creations Mamba XL X is ready to ship.  Yes, you read that right.

Mamba XL X is a new high-performance controller for 1:5th scale RC hobby vehicles weighing up to 30 lbs. Paired with the 2028-800kv Extreme motor, this duo becomes the perfect combination for large-scale, ultra-high-performance RC vehicles. Have you ever seen a 1:5th scale Baja doing 70 mph? If you’ve got the traction, this Castle combination can get you there. The features of this recently revamped ESC will prove this supercharged combo will provide all of the brains and brawn needed to OVERPOWER 1:5th scale car and gas to electric conversions.
NEW HIGH POWER BEC
A robust, user adjustable, internal 20A peak BEC will provide plenty of juice for applications with powerful servos and electrical components that run off the ESC.

AUXILIARY WIRE FUNCTIONALITY ON-THE-FLY ADJUSTMENTS
When the Castle Phoenix Edge line was introduced for heli and plane applications, we announced the addition of the user programmable auxiliary wire. Our surface enthusiasts will now have a taste of the simplicity and convenience of this feature with the Mamba X Series Electronic Speed Controllers (ESC). In short, the auxiliary wire is an extra wire that, when connected to an open channel on your radio, allows users to take advantage of on-the-fly adjustments (using your transmitter) that would otherwise be modified or set using the Castle Link Programming Suite. The feature is enabled through the Castle Link Programming system and one mode may be selected at a time. Several modes are available for on-the-fly programming:

Max Throttle Percentage Adjustment
Perfect for passing the controls to children, neighbors, or your boss. The ESC’s maximum power is scaled from 10% to 100% depending on the signal received on the AUX wire.
Max Reverse Percentage Adjustment
The ESC’s maximum reverse power is scaled from 10% to 100% depending on the signal received on the AUX wire.
Max Brake Percentage Adjustment
The ESC’s maximum reverse power is scaled from 10% to 100% depending on the signal received on the AUX wire.
Drag Brake Adjustment
Experiment with different settings (0% to full brake) on different tracks to be able to tune to the conditions quickly wherever you race. For bashers – a very light amount of drag brake can make the car seem more under control and easier to drive. Because bashing is often on uneven and low-grip surfaces, use very low settings at first to avoid spinning out when it engages.
Reverse Enable/Disable
Depending upon the signal received from the AUX wire, reverse capability is enabled and disabled (only works in modes with reverse).
Torque Control Adjustment
The Torque Limit feature is essentially a more effective form of Punch Control, where by the ESC can detect how much load is being placed on the motor and reduce the power it receives – this is extremely useful and effective for reducing wheelies and back-flips from a standing-start, something you definitely do not want when you are racing. You can dial in from 0.1 to 5.0 with the AUX wire functionality.
Datalog Erase
Toggle the Auxiliary channel for a few seconds while in idle to erase the datalog. This can be added to any of the above modes.
