Ground Shipping Items

Some RC Planet's products can only be transported under ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials for Domestic transport). Shipping under ORM-D means that the product will ship via FedEx Ground only, and cannot be shipped outside of the US. These products include:

  • Non-Water Based Paint and Paint Thinner
  • Petroleum-Based Oil
  • Aerosol Type Products
  • Traction Compounds
  • Tire and Body Cleaners
  • Epoxy / Accelerators / Debonder

The US Postal Service will not transport ORM-D items, and will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.


For All Shipments: Special labeling requirements are needed to safely transport any Lithium products. Certain large Lithium Batteries will always require HazMat handling and will only ship via Fedex. If you would like to know more about FedEx and the safety precautions taken when transporting Lithium Batteries, please refer to the FedEx guidelines.

International Shipments: Lithium Batteries are regulated as HAZMAT (Hazardous Material) products and can be dangerous if not packaged properly for transportation. In smaller quantities, Lithium Batteries can be shipped via DHL without applying a HAZMAT fee. If you'd like to ship more than 2 Lithium Batteries, a HAZMAT fee will be applied for transportation. Please note that DHL only allows transportation of HAZMAT / Dangerous Goods to specific countries, some of which have limited service areas.

The US Postal Service prohibits international mailing of Lithium Batteries, as well as electronic devices that contain Lithium Batteries. These new regulations also prohibit shipments to or from Army, Fleet, and Diplomatic Post Offices. Because of these regulations, no US Postal Service shipping options will be available during checkout.

Domestic Shipments: Both FedEx and the US Postal Service are available as shipping carriers for most Lithium Batteries and electronic devices containing Lithium Batteries. Please note that the US Postal Service has a limit of three batteries per shipment; you can refer to the Domestic Mail Manual for further information.


Fuel is classified as a "flammable" liquid. RC Planet can transport limited quantities of flammable liquid under ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials for Domestic transport). Shipping under ORM-D means that the product will ship via FedEx Ground only. For larger quantities of fuel (Example: case quantities), it must be transported under HAZMAT. Transporting as HAZMAT means that the amount of fuel is considered hazardous and will be subject to shipping by Ground services, including a HAZMAT fee for the special transportation. Fuel cannot ship outside of the US.

Please note that the US Postal Service does not transport Fuel and will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.

Rocket Motors

Rocket Motors, Rocket Igniters and Rockets are classified as »Toy Propellant Devices« and can only be transported through Surface Mail with the US Postal Service's Parcel Post. FedEx does not transport Rocket Motors, Rocket Igniters and Rockets. Please note that FedEx will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.

International Shipping Restriction Batteries:

Due to circumstances and regulations that are beyond RC Planet's control, batteries cannot ship outside of the US when using the United States Postal Service as the shipping provider. However, RC Planet can ship batteries internationally using DHL International, but the quantity cannot exceed a total of 2 batteries with a capacity of 5000mah maximum. Unfortunately we are currently unable to ship this item to APO/FPO addresses and apologize for the inconvenience.

Questions and answers about Castle Creations 1/10 SV3 Sidewinder Waterproof 12V ESC/4600 Combo CSE010-0115-01

From Customer | 2017-02-27 03:04:57

i was thinking about putting this in my Traxxas Stampede 2wd What battery combination would you recommend it has 90T spur gear and a 19T pinion gear we are going to the dunes this summer so i wanted your guys opinion


That should provide plenty of power with a 2s lipo but if you wanted to get a bit more out of it you should be able to run a 3s with out any issues just keep an eye on your temperatures.

From Customer | 2017-02-02 18:21:26

How fast will this go inside of a Traxxas slash 2wd


This all depends on your gear ratio and what battery pack you're using, with the right gearing and pack you should be able to get about 70 or more out of it, just keep an eye on your temperatures.

From Customer | 2016-12-30 16:26:32

will this fit the 1/16 slash. do I need any other things to attach it


This will fit the 1/16th Slash if it is the newer model that has the 12t Titan motor in it. You will need to solder the battery plug wire on and then trim the chassis to make the ESC fit but it is an easy installation.

From Customer | 2016-12-27 13:16:02

Does this system require programming?


The ESC does come pre programmed with the factory default settings which can be changed but don't need to be as long as the settings match your application. The ESC will have to have the battery plug of your choice soldered on and then calibrated to your transmitter but other than that you should be set. Programming and setting it up is real easy and it will come with an easy instruction sheet with all the info needed.

From Customer | 2016-12-14 14:39:44

will a duratrax 7.2v 5000mah battery work for this I just had my old axial esc go out but i have 4 of these batteries and would like it if i did not need to buy more


Yes those packs will work with this combo just fine.

From Customer | 2016-10-26 14:37:06

Whats the rated speeds this motor has run?


This depends on the RC you put it in along with what battery and gear ratio is used. With a 3S in a 2WD RC with it geared tall you could see speeds of around 50 to 60mph. I have ran their 5700kv in a 4WD on road car with it over geared along with a 3S pack and have had it clocked at 91mph, it gets extremely hot and I can only do 4 passes but its fast. I run this same set up in my 1/16th Summit and it does 45mph all day long on a 2S pack. Its a great combo and we would highly recommend it for many applications.

From Customer | 2016-09-16 17:06:53

Can I add a fan to this ESC and what would you recommend? Also for motor?


Yes you can use the Castle Creations CC Blower SCT SV3 Fan part number CSE011-0085-00 and CSE011-0014-00.

From Customer | 2016-08-17 21:42:00

Will this run with an 8 cell 5000mah 9.6v NiMH? Also would this be a good replacement motor/esc for a Traxxas Stampede weighing about 4.1 lbs?


The input voltage is: 2S LiPo minimum, 3S LiPo maximum, 9 cell max on NiCd/NiMH. Yes this system would be great for the Stampede 2wd.
