Castle Creations is proud to announce our new flagship surface product, the MAMBA X EXTREME 1:10 SCALE WATERPROOF ESC. 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 paired with sensored 1406 - 4600kv motor is the perfect combo for 1/10th scale vehicles weighing less than 5lbs. Suggested applications are 1/10th scale touring cars, buggies and stadium trucks up to a 3s LiPo. It can also be used in a 1/10th scale 2WD Short Course Truck on 2s LiPo and geared conservatively.

NOT for use in 4WD short course trucks.

*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.

  • Input Voltage Range:
  • MIN: 2S LiPo
  • MAX: 6S LiPo (25.2V)
  • BEC Specifications: Adjustable: 5.5V, 6.0V, 7.5V. or 8.0V (8A Peak), default 5.5V
  • Operating Environment: Waterproof* design allows for use in nearly any environment
  • Brake: Proportional
  • Reversible: Yes, but may be disabled for racing.
  • On/Off Switch: Yes
  • Cooling Fan: Yes, factory equipped (30mm), fully removable** (see Product Use Statements below)
  • Size (LxWxH): 2.14" (54.4mm) x 1.39" (35.2mm) x 1.18" (30.0mm)
  • Weight (with wires): 3.56 oz. (101g)
  • Connectors: 4.0mm female bullets for motor connection.
  • Programmability: Fully programmable Castle feature set using Castle Link USB adapter (coupon for free Link included) and freely downloadable Castle Link Windows software, or the Castle Link iOS App and a B-Link Bluetooth Adapter (sold separately).
  • Max. Recommended Vehicle Weight: Less than 5lbs/2.3kg , with batteries, ready-to-run with included 1406 - 4600kv motor.
  • Items Needed for Operation: Battery Connector required, Castle 6.5mm Polarized Connectors, Castle 4.0mm Polarized Connectors, Traxxas® Power Connectors, or Deans® Ultra Plugs are recommended
  • Product Use Statements: *Although Mamba X is waterproof, it is not intended for operation while completely submerged in liquid. 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: Requires purchase of Futaba S.BUS™ Telemetry Link. S.BUS2™ extends Futaba S.BUS™ and supports bidirectional communication. Compatible radios will support S.BUS2 protocol. It is also necessary to utilize a compatible Futaba® Telemetry Receiver. Click here to view the Futaba® Radio Compatibility Chart.
  • Tech Notes:
    • 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.

    Please refer to our Gearing Chart for recommended motor, battery and gearing for some of the more popular vehicles on the market.
  • Max. Recommended Vehicle Weight: 5lbs
  • Tech Notes:
    • Running modes: SMARTSENSE™, Sensored only
    • 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.
