This is the Castle Creations Mamba XL2 Combo w/ 34V ESC, 2028 Motor and Switching BEC. Castle Creations now has a combo set containing the Mamba XL2 ESC and a Neu-Castle 2028 brushless motor! Features:
- Only controller on the market to handle the loads required to power heavy 1/5 scale vehicles to insane speeds
- Measures and records parameters such as your battery volts, amp draw, motor rpm, controller temperature and battery ripple voltage
- Easily capable of pumping out up to 10 horsepower (peak)
- 1/5 nitro users can now go backwards!
The new Mamba XL2 is the only controller on the market that’s able to handle the loads required to power these heavy 1/5 scale vehicles to insane speeds. Castle Creations can prove it too, as the Mamba XL2 features all of the standard Mamba series programming features plus a first for the RC car market; data logging.
The Mamba XL2 controller actually measures and records parameters such as your battery volts, amp draw, motor rpm, controller temperature and battery ripple voltage. This is a great way to make sure that the entire setup is performing within limits and to show that this combo is easily capable of pumping out up to 10 horsepower (peak). This electric setup makes the stock gas engine look positively pathetic.
Most 1/5 scale chassis have plenty of room for up to 8S LiPo, (33.6 volts). Run times with an 8S 1P 5,000 mAh class cells are approximately 15 minutes – depending on your driving style. The on board switching BEC is able to lower that motor pack voltage to 5 volts, at up to 5 amps to provide the power required by those big steering servos.
One more thing; Now 1/5 scale nitro users can step into the future and actually go backwards. Those annoying walks out to free your gas powered buggies are history!
