MAMBA X 25.2V WP ESC 1406-2850Kv Sensored Combo (CSE010015510) - ax006
The Mamba 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 high power, ultra reliable Mamba X ESC. This combo is ideal for low speed crawling or trail running in vehicles weighing up to 9lbs on 2s to 4s; it can also be used in more aggressive setups like rock racing and extended hill climbing on vehicles up to 5lbs. Your ESC will come with our new V2.02 firmware that has been enhanced for rock crawling and sensored operation.
INPUT VOLTAGE RANGE OF 2S-4S (with included motor) with an internal 8A ADJUSTABLE BEC (5.25V-8.0V)
Housed in a RUGGED CNC-MACHINED ALUMINUM CASE and potted in WATERPROOF epoxy to withstand the most extreme driving conditions and environments.
Removable 30MM COOLING FAN
Recon G6 Certified
Paired with the improved 4-POLE 12-SLOT SENSORED1406-28500KV SLATE motor provides precise throttle control and buttery smooth starts
Convenient TRANSMITTER PROGRAMMING for six common adjustable settings.
Access to Castle’s INDUSTRY LEADING SOFTWARE with use of Castle Link USB (coupon included for free USB with purchase) and freely downloadable Castle-Link Windows™ program , or the Castle Link iOS App and a B-LINK™ Bluetooth Adapter (sold separately) for anytime, anywhere system adjustments. Click here to see the Mamba X Castle Link Settings Overview.
Firmware updates available with use of Castle Link USB and Castle Link Programming Suite.
DATA LOGGING captures and records performance data for maximum optimization of both performance and battery life
AUXILIARY WIRE FUNCTIONALITY allows for “on-the-fly” adjustments such as ROCK RACE/CRAWLER MODE. These adjustments can be made real time, while driving, right from your transmitter.
Castle’s 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 ELECTRONIC TIMING. Smooth sensored startups and high-efficiency sensorless running makes the Mamba X 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.
Mamba X ESC features AUDIBLE ALERTS that will notify you of possible issues with calibrations and error conditions to help diagnose problems in the field.
Mamba X is TELEMETRY READY which means owners of the Futaba T4PX or 7PX 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.

Product Use Statements:
*Although Mamba X is waterproof, it is not intended for operation while completely submerged in liquid. T Always rinse the ESC and motor with clean water after exposure to corrosives or dirt. While the motor and controller may be waterproof, we suggest users confirm that the rest of their vehicle, including the batteries, servos, radio and chassis are also waterproof before exposing them to liquids of any kind.
**The cooling fan must be removed prior to driving in wet conditions. It is not waterproof.

Telemetry Link Capable: Yes
Mamba X setups frequently hit 100+ amps in peaks and not all LiPos are created equal. Surge ratings should never be used to determine a pack's suitability for a brushless application. Recommended battery capacity for 1:8th scale vehicles is 5000mAh. We recommend using 30C continuous discharge or higher LiPo batteries (or high quality 25C batteries such as Traxxas® Power Cell).
Our experience suggests using only mild gear ratios with NiMH cells. Do not attempt to use NiMH cells in extreme setups.
Applying voltages higher than 25.2V will cause irreparable damage to ESC.
We recommend a high-current connector designed for high-powered electric systems, rated for 70+ amps. Invest in connector sets made for high-powered electric systems such as our Castle 6.5mm Polarized Connectors, Castle 4.0mm Polarized Connectors, Traxxas® Power Connectors, or Deans® Ultra Plugs.

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.
