Putting the X in Extreme!

The

Mamba Micro X Crawler edition is our latest offering for the crawling

crowd. We have taken our new 1406 low kv crawler motors and paired it

with the lightweight, small footprint Mamba Micro X ESC. This combo is

ideal for 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. If you're looking for a more aggressive setup in a heavier rig,

like rock racing and extended hill climbing,we recommend you run the Mamba X ESC with the same motor. Your ESC will come with our new V2.02 firmware that has been enhanced for rock crawling and sensored operation. Use of an external BEC is recommended if running a high power or digital servo.



 

This SPECIAL EDITION of the Mamba Micro X includes solder posts with 16

AWG wire for the motor connection; it also includes the matching 4mm

female bullets to pair with the included 1406-2280kv sensored brushless

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!



Telemetry Capability

The Mamba Micro X is telemetry ready, which means owners of FutabaT4PX 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.

Tech Notes:

Running modes: SMARTSENSE™, Sensored, Sensorless with Castle sensored capable ESCs.

Water Resistant Design: The sensor board is coated with silicone conformal coating to protect the sensors from moisture. The sensor connections are not water resistant; water can cause signal loss which could result in loss of sensored capabilities. Castle recommended applying dielectric grease to the outside of the sensor wire connections after installation of the wire. Routine maintenance is recommended after running in wet conditions. Please refer to this document for running and maintaining motors in wet environments.
